Ascent Trip Report

Peak needs new Register & the register container is full. Beautiful day to sit on the top in spite of all the smoke haze on the surrounding mountains in the distance. I could have stayed on top for hours. Easy enough to scramble up as the granite boulders are stable, but be aware of trying to scramble down to the north of the summit. I took a spill as the steps across boulders are too far apart & the down is not safe. Middle is better. Long Lake Trail takes you to just under the summit.
