Ascent Trip Report

Hiked up from camp about 6 miles up Little East Fork of the Blacks Fork. Up to the pass from camp, and then directly up the ridge. Came down through a draw a bit North of the summit. The views were incredible, especially of Red Castle. Right as I got on top to where I could see Red Castle I saw a Bobcat hunting in the rocks below me. Got a few pics and a vid before it took off down the hill!
