Ascent Trip Report

Laid down GPS tracks of the East and West trail approaches. In addition, as usual, to break up the monotony of the lodge-pole pine stretches, i found some areas to bushwhack that led me out to some ledges and extra credits hikes and few pinnacle scrambles. Because of the snow and ice, i kept all scrambles to 2+ and 3. There is one large pinnacle block up on the east trail side that is impressive rising about 50 feet - a wall of class 5 but you can skirt around the south end and find class 3 and on the backside it tapers down to about a 20 foot high formation with easier class 2 to class 3.
