Ascent Trip ReportReturn trip to get Maguire Peak East. Started from Welch Creek Road on Upper Maguire Peaks Trail. Did part of the loop, counterclockwise, then headed straight up the slope. There was a little bit of class 2 easy 3 scramble just below Maguire Peaks East, then another spot above the saddle on the way the the west summit. Saw a bobcat run right in front of me just beneath the first summit.
From the top of the west peak I took a shortcut down the grassy slope.
