Ascent Trip Report

Came back for redemption after our unsuccessful hike a month earlier. We used the Upper O'Brien trail head. Followed the trail to the Boundary Trail. Upon reaching that junction we took a left and followed the trail for about 100 yards before heading up the meadows. We followed the meadow until about 6,700 feet where there were a number of rocks. We found three cairns but couldn't find any more. Upon reaching the top we quickly found the boundary marker, summit register and a GPS cache. When we decided to head down towards Windy Gap following the ridge line for a couple hundred yards. Once we passed a large rock knob the terrain transitioned from rocks to dirt. We then headed down hill until we reached the boundary trail.
