Ascent Trip Report

For me, this was an exploratory hike up Slick Rock Creek. Chris has snow climbed this route to summit, so we attempted dry climbing it. Loose terrain with bad run out, thunderstorms looming, turned back at 6800 feet to go explore Zumwalt Prairie instead. Found a frontier era campsite with broken down cast iron stove high atop some rimrock. Neat area, but the route wasn't really anything to write home about.
