Ascent Trip Report

Actually this wasn't an "unsuccessful attempt," more of a reconnaissance with the thought that if conditions were right, including my own energy level, I would climb from Treasure Lakes (class 3) and descend to Long Lake (class 2). Pretty reasonable, with an earlier start, less dawdling and less wind. Bishop was pretty windy to start. When I got to the lake just below the likely ascent routes, I encountered a young guy and asked if they (he and companion) had climbed Hurd. He said they started up but it was too windy .

An excellent mountain day.
