Ascent of Observation Rock on 2020-08-01
|Date:||Saturday, August 1, 2020|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||8364 ft / 2549 m|
Ascent Trip ReportDropped down from echo rock, then took the saddle to observation rock. Some of the group took the high route on snow. I tried the treadmill scree variation (which was a shortcut but lot of work, works good downhill)
Scramble is like a well trodden boot path on rock and scree
Spend more time on the summit.
On the way down, we opted a backcountry traverse variation to get to spray park area, instead of taking the trail out. We connected to the Trail at 6k feet. Lots of hikers on spray park on the way out!
As usual parking was rare to find!
