Ascent Trip Report

With Beckie, camped at TH via Spring Creek Association gate key. Minimal hassle to do that, well worth it. 2:50 up to lake, 2:10 to summit via E ridge. 1:20 down to lake, 1:30 to TH. Long day, lots of boulder hopping in upper basin, then steep narrow ridge, exhilarating, flat rocks but 4-8' wide upper portion of it. Came down NW to minor saddle, then down ledges in a northeast direction scrambling to 10,400' knob area. Pick your poison, I liked my up route and then down route. Up ledges would be ugly, down ridge would be interesting to say the least. Cairns everywhere, Nevadans love their cairns.... Brand new Otter Box with summit register just placed a week prior.

Almost no one in entire valley, on Columbus Day weekend. Griswold Lake is beautiful, would backpack to it if we ever came back. Did NOT see the Himalayan Snowcock. Great weather, nice views all directions. Aspen still yellow in valley.
