Ascent Trip ReportMy 300th John Strauch hike celebration with the Friday Fanatics. 13 of us embarked on the climb via HPS route 1. Was very windy on the ridge top making for a more difficult than normal climb. Six of us made the summit. Took six hours total including lunch break etc. Deviated from the HPS route on the descent by dropping off the ridge towards our vehicles before reaching the mine area. A fun day, but then Granite is always a fun day.
