Ascent Trip Report

- La Garita Ascent via Southwest Slopes from East Willow Creek Trailhead
- La Garita descent towards 'Phoenix Peak' via Pt. 13,780 and connecting northwest ridge
- Phoenix Peak descent via south east slopes back to East Willow Creek Trailhead from FR502 road
- Felt kinda like garbage. Big gentle setting near the outskirts of the San Juans. Easy running on the downhill to make it back to Creed in time for a burger. Not a soul even near the trailhead...
