Ascent Trip Report

Started at the parking area 0.7 miles north of Panorama Pint on the Gap Road. A short set of stairs commences the hike followed by a right turn onto Mule Deer Trail. I didn't stay long on the maintained trail but simply headed upslope eventually arriving at those two bumps just west of the Tremont ridge. There is a flat space between the bumps and the ridge like an elongated saddle. Used that to get to X10221 and then worked my way back to scramble up to the three different summit areas. I actually thought the middle peak might be the highest. It seemed the more impressive and the scrambling was enjoyable although scrambling on the eastern
group of outcrops was fun as well.

I hiked backed down a bit more westernly than my ascent. On two occasions I was able to use old logging roads to make easier downward progress rather than bushwhacking thru a lot of old fallen limbs.

So there are at least two of these vertical roads that run down to the Mule Deer Trail> Neither goes all the way to the saddle, but can aid in a quicker ascent/descent. The first one is easy enough to spot just a couple minutes southbound on Mule Deer. The next one is marked by a rock culvert.

Not a long hike, but definitely an entertaining ridge.
