Ascent Trip Report

This was the first of five summits along the Elkhorn Crest my friend Will and I did in a one-day, 22-mile push with over 5000 feet of climbing, much of it off-trail and on some spectrum of scrambly. This was the most technically challenging of the five peaks, with a touch of exposure on the back-side, but a very pleasant walk up.
