Ascent Trip Report

I began the hike at the Sno-Tel facility in Lissie's basin. The cow trails through the dwarf aspens and ceanothus made easy work of finding the track and
the GPS maps on the trip reports found here on peakbagger were very helpful in gaining the ridge and moving on to the summit.
This is a steep hike and it took me 4 hours and 20 minutes to summit.
A metal canister with several registers was found cached below the wooden upright.
