Ascent Trip Report

The summit register is in need of a writing utensil. We found none there as of our ascent date. It was my 9 year old nephew Kayden's first ever peak, so, if a fellow peakbagger would be so kind as to add all of our names to the register and shoot me a pic, we would appreciate it! Aug 13, 2020: Kayden Anderson, Sage Kallestad, Sawyer Kallestad, Becca Barlow, James Barlow.

Hike was a very pleasant ascent as we were in the shaded forest for most of the cool morning, then in beautiful wildflower fields to the final off-trail ridge walk to the top in a pleasant breeze. We stopped for lunch in a less windy spot partway down the ridge in the trees with a fine view of the peaks to the east. After this peak Kayden declared that he wants to climb 20 peaks on his upcoming ~6 month cross-country RV trip!
