Ascent Trip Report

This was a long hike in, I was attacked on the hike out by what I believe was a northern goshawk that divembombed me repeatedly undoubtedly protecting a nearby nest.

Fun hike, lakes basin is very pretty. Much more strenuous than the marble pass approach which is pretty much flat the entire way. lots and lots of mountain goats!
