Ascent Trip Report

From the saddle with Mt Massive - Northwest Peak, we began our sidehill to the east as we had on our outbound trip, following the faint trail/herdpath. This time however, we left the path and stayed more to the ridgeline, and after hopping a bunch of small boulders easily reached the "summit" of what amounts to a minor bump along the ridgeline.

Descent was more of the same along the southeast ridge to the saddle with Mt Massive proper.
