Ascent Trip Report

I hiked with my dog, Kif. Trailhead right off of Exit 176 from I-80 E. Took about an hour and a half to reach the base of the summit (that includes a 5 minute break and a 20 minute detour on the PCT). I did not reach the high point because the climb to the top was ~ class 3/4 rock scramble and would be too risky with my dog. Used this trail to get to Basin Peak.
