Ascent Trip Report

What a way to finish the hike, and the 3500 Club! Laura and I missed the herd path on the way up, and so took a much more vertical route than necessary. Found a lot of chaga as a result, leaving it to grow because it takes ~20 years to reproduce. Took the herd path down, loving the hemlock groves along the ravine at the lower elevations. Lessons learned: the main route is just before the second stream crossing, and sometimes it's okay to find your own way.
