Ascent Trip Report

Hiked to the back of Big Sandy Lake. Lots of mosquitoes. Slept in Saturday morning and didn't start hiking until around 10am. Made it to Black Joe Lake at 11am. Took a long time scrambling over/around boulders on the south side of Black Joe Lake. Around 2:30pm we decided that we didn't have enough time to make it to the peak, so we turned around, fished Black Joe Lake on the way back, and made it back to camp just before dark.
