Ascent Trip Report

On our way up to grab Little Scraggy, we got tired of climbing up the bike trails from the Kelsey CG area and at some point under the USGS point 8754 we saw a wonderful slab of rock and decided it was time to get off trail, out of the snow, and see how our boots would to wet on the granite slabs for the day. Instead of climbing all class 2 and 2+ we found some places to use class holds and climb and our boots did pretty well. A few slips on wet class 2 slabs but where there was hand and foot holds we climbed easily. From the saddle of the main peak and this subpeak was a bit of tree blowdown and one small false peak but the summit blocks were all easy only class 2 and 2+. So there is no reason to get on class 3 unless you want to and we wanted to. There are up close and personal views of nearby prominence gem Green Mountain from this vantage point and a clear view of how to climb Little Scraggy.
