Ascent Trip Report

A great hike. The trails well maintained and either flat carriage or easy path or crazy well done rock steps and through bands of granite. Te park service did a find job. These bands would be a challenging route but they found weaknesses in the walls and made fun steps of class 2 and 2+. A few places one might argue some hand pulling here and there but VERY easy class 3 at best. Mostly class 2 steps but steep and beautiful. Views everywhere of the ocean, inland lakes, mountains, and woods. Best of all....air temperature perfect with a constant breeze enveloping you from the ocean as perfect of weather as one can feel on their skin climbing. Open slabs to walk. Really a wonderful hike

Then over to do Sargeant
