Ascent Trip Report

Left trail shortly after crossing Dry Fork Creek and ascended through open meadows towards the unnamed lake at the base of Red Mountain. From just above the lake, we made ascended easy Class III slopes and utilized a prominent diagonal ledge that led to a deep notch just east of the summit block. A short, exposed move provided easy access to the ridge top, and the summit was reached shortly thereafter. Fantastic mountain with amazing views from the top!
