Ascent Trip Report

We hiked in to Dollar Lake from the Henry's Fork trailhead and camped overnight. The next morning we hiked up to Gunsight Pass, and instead of dropping down into Painter Basin we traversed to the right and went up over the ridge, then rock-hopped back to the trail below Anderson Pass. There were only a couple of other climbers on the mountain, and we were alone on the summit. We headed back down to Dollar Lake and hiked back to the trailhead the next day.
