Ascent Trip Report

A little chilly in the morning, with some clouds, but around 9:00 the clouds were gone. I nice walk, and after the we left Roost, we decided to alter our route and walk back on an old trail, and the head to Oriflamme Mtn. We had heard that there was a register. Our son who is 16 went with us today, but I could tell that even though he is fit and a tuff guy, he didn't really want to make a try for the top, so instead we just walked back up. We only encountered one other person out on the trail today, it was a man with his dog, and he was hunting quail. A nice guy, and we talked with him for a bit and then went our separate ways. We made a point to look at a couple of mine claims, and it looked like at least one was up to date and there were tailings scattered about around the base.
