Ascent Trip Report

Began hike at the Eielson Visitor Center. Hiked the alpine trail to the top of thorofare ridge. Traversed the ridge eastwards along a well defined social trail until reaching the hummocky base of thorofare peak. Picked our way over the hummocks and eventually attained the summit next to a radio repeater tower. Descended a different way to our ascent on a sheep trail, to complete a loop instead of out and back.
