Ascent Trip Report

We chose the Granite Chief TH on Chamoniix Place for convenient return via Aerial Tram drop to Olympic Village. First 200' climb to GCT trail was a rough scramble/bushwhacking. But the rest of the GCT to PCT was a delightful albeit uphill hike. From Granite Chief summit we headed over to adjacent Needle Peak but aborted the attempt halfway as we wanted to take the last aerial tram from High Camp down to the Olympic Valley.
