Ascent Trip Report

Boy Scout trip. Traveled E from Lake Sylvia, then did a frontal attack to the S to attain the W ridge. Ascended ridge to the peak. Took hikers' advice to descend the ridge to the saddle before peak 8662, then follow a path down to the lake from the saddle. But started descending early, a bit E of the saddle, which cost us an easy but fairly exposed traverse across a rock face. Reached the trail and followed it down, arriving back at camp late afternoon.
