Ascent Trip Report

A suprising quick climb up a good use trail. Excellent views of the Sierras, upper Owens Valley, and more Nevada ranges than I can name. Fascinating geology too. The air was completely still, despite experiencing high winds in the Sierras before and after the ascent. I did lose the trail for a bit on the steep chute section of the return trip, following the wayward screeprints of prior lost hikers, and may have contributed to the confusion for those to come.
