Ascent Trip Report

Flume was our trail down the loop, we bagged liberty and flume that day, we didnt manage to bag lafyette but it was a great hike anyways, and im sure we will go back, I have to say it had a beautiful surroundings with all the other mountians and it was a nice hike, It is VERY challanging though, we ended up going down the flume slide trail, wow it was probobly the steepest climb ever, that is a memory ill never forget, and of corse i waas a young new hiker but loved to hike, i didnt have to boots i have today, "salmons" they cost me around $135, but they make a difference. so i was wearing regular boots, but id say its a hard one and only experianced hikers should try going up/down
