Ascent Trip Report

Camped with the ccc crew at the trailhead. Left at 7 am. Missed the turn to punchbowl and ended up hiking al the way down to trout creek before we realized our mistake. Made it to devils punchbowl at 10:30. Traversed around backside if lake over boulders and bushes to the large skree field. Large size rock skree up to ridge. Near too of skree we went left towards peak up a near vertical rock corner that included a scramble up a loose steep and exposed rock rock climb. Should have followed skree field to the right. Once we made the ridge it was an easy trail blaze though low growing brush and manzanita. Topped out on summit at 11:45. Down climbed same way except for e rock wall we made sure to head deeper into skree filed before we started down from ridge. Skree field is steep and has a few trees near the top. Stopped at lake for a swim and wash of the sweat salts. Left lake around 2 and made it back to trailhead about 4:45.
