Ascent Trip Report

From Flattop Mountain, I headed down the Southeast ridge to the saddle with Peak Two. The ascent to peak two was a mix of shallow snow and scree. Attaining the actual summit once on the ridge of Peak Two required some moderate class 2 scrambling.

Came down the same way I came up from the Flattop trailhead with the exception of a glicade down peak two.
