Ascent Trip Report

We started from the trailhead at the camp ground. Its a steepish trail with grated/fenced ground for shoe friction over the scree parts for most of the way up. Amazing view from the top (assuming you can find a day that's not socked in). Took us 2 hours to get up. Its worth the hike as long as its a clear day.
