Ascent Trip Report

There is a nice use trail connecting Jobs Sister to Freel Peak and Jobs Peak. I highly recommend going from Freel to Jobs Sister and then on to Jobs because done that way, the descents are steep and loose but allow for enjoyable scree glissades. Coming off of Freel, the trail to Jobs Sister goes off the east side- we took the trail going off the southeast side (which probably goes down to the lower horse meadow trailhead), but we were easily able to traverse around to get back to the trail at the saddle east of the peak.

The trail to Jobs starts out easy to follow (and is virtually all scree glissading), but after hitting the ridge, there appeared to be many, many trails- fortunately, it looked like they all went to the same place.
