Ascent Trip Report

With Paul Kondrat and Jennifer Goodwin. Biked 3mi on Carbon River Rd to Green Lake trail, hiked up trail (1.8mi) almost to the lake, then scrambled up ridge to summit. Crux was finding a slot thru a cliff band (around 5000ft). Slot is above and to the climbers left of a ravine filled with Devils Club. Route is listed as a 6 hour trip, must be a very poor estimate or done in mid-winter. This took us 12 hours, including about an hour floundering around looking for a way thru the cliff band.
