Ascent Trip Report

This time I also did the east peak (aka Ruby Pyramid)- a bit more ground than rock than on Ruby Dome- enough to make me (briefly) regret leaving my hiking poles well below. We were shocked to find some ass(es) destroyed the stone chair than had been on this summit for YEARS. If I get back here with more time, I may spend some trying to rebuild it.
