Ascent Trip Report

Mountaineers scramble. 9 hours car to car. Started at 7am with a 35 minute, 3 mile bike ride from the Carbon River entrance to the Green Lake trailhead. We went up the trailhead to just before the lake. We left the trail on an ESE heading and started our bushwhack toward Gove. It was brushy, but not horrible. Our original plan was to follow the track and waypoints of Robert Jenner's 9/23/19 trip, but we actually ended up west of his track and this ended up actually being a pretty good route that avoided the cliff band at 4,600 feet. At 4,800 feet we started experiencing snow and from 4,900 feet to the ridgeline, we had consistent snow up the gully. Once at the ridgeline, we ran the ridge back to the Gove summit. Some class 2 rock moves, but nothing too difficult. A little brushy in places along the ridge line. We were at the summit at noon. After lunch, we headed back down more or less the same way we came up. Back at the trail, we took a brief side trip to Green Lake, then back to the bikes and a quick 15 minute ride out. Sunny weather and pleasant. Good group and a lot of fun. Final hiking stats were 7.3 miles r/t and 3,200 feet gain. Plus bike of 3 miles each way, 400 foot gain
