Ascent Trip Report

I camped on the saddle between Knox and Big Canyons, coming up the Knox Canyon side from Arbon Valley. The road was in excellent condition. It snowed two inches overnight, so that was exciting. The route toward the peak was slick with wet snow. That made the ascent more difficult and a little annoying, but it was fine. The views of the cloud-filled valleys with sunny skies above were pretty astounding.
