Ascent Trip Report

Summitted after summitting Mount Sawyer. Went back to the Tonga Ridge trail and followed for about 1/4 mile and then left the trail for the ridge between the 2 peaks. Fairly easy bushwack mostly along the crest of the ridge to reach the summmit. Views would have been better if not for the smoke haze although much better than the last few days. Actually air felt good to breathe. Many berries, but not as many as on the way to Mount Sawyer.
