Ascent Trip Report

Trail in good shape; snow having melted about a week ago. Anything sloping north tended to be a little muddy. Cool walk around the perimeter, looking down over the sheer cliff to Banks Lake. Some very large glacial erratics scattered across the top. Skipped the far south end of the plateau because the trails going up appeared steep and very muddy.
