Ascent Trip Report

Combined with Winter Star and Gibbs for the S6K challenge. Was by myself. Parked at Shufford Creek Road parking area. Kinda sketchy but did it anyway with no problem. The trail was nice going up and when I got to the summit ridge, the day was fabulous. Absolutely beautiful!!! I went tout to Winter Star and Deer first then came back to Gibbs to finish. Beautiful trail, views and sky. Clear as a bell. The hike up 177 was not bad at all. Never found Horse Rock...maybe I did see it and just didn't impress?
