Ascent Trip Report

Aidan and I decided to head up Grouse Mtn from Cerro Noroeste and Puerta del Suelo. The hike starts up with a downhill section - something I'm not used to at the beginning of a hike. After dropping to Puerta del Suelo, we began the steep ascent of Grouse Mtn. Once the trail topped out, we headed south towards the summit. There are 2 summits that seem to be the high point. One is in a clearing with no rocks and the other is slightly to the south with a cairn on top of rocks. Looking at the map and GPS, it seems that the north summit is higher, but the cairn is on the south one. Whatever... we did both and signed the register. Aidan is probably the only 7 year old to do this one...
