Ascent Trip Report

Up via the steep rock steps of the Platteklipp Ravine. Visited the Western Table first, lunch in sunshine watched intently by Redwing Starlings, one sees his chance and steals the top off my sandwich. Return over top of ravine and across plateau to MaClear's Beacon, the mountain high point. Try to find a way down to the Saddle and Devils Peak, but getting late and with no obvious easy route we return via Platteklipp.
