Ascent Trip Report

This was a great hike. On the way up, we went just west of the peak labeled 1268 and then kept to the north of the wash heading up to the final ridge. Part of our party descended into the wash, but after taking that on the return, I strongly recommend staying high on the north side of the wash - the terrain is all class 1-2, though occasional small class 3 chutes can be found for those who are interested. Once at the north ridge, the hike is fairly trivial.
