Ascent Trip Report

The trip up Wheeler is tough for a trail hike due to the steepness and the elevation. From there, if one keeps to the edge, the terrain down Wheeler and up Jeff Davis isn't bad with solid ground and even some use or animal trails in places. Making the way behind the pinnacle is more challenging (and certainly more annoying). And, of course, the elevation makes all of it more difficult.
