Ascent Trip ReportFrom Patterson Guard Station, it was about 7.8 miles, after the initial 700 feet of gain it was quite gentle, as we made our way to the base of Eagle Peak by following the Summit Trail. From there it became steep, first through scrub and then through 600 feet of steep and loose pebbles and sandy talus. This part was the toughest on the day. We summited 3:45 after starting out, spent 45 minutes on summit, then retraced back down, bagging PK 8743 (P300) and then the WSC listed Emerson Peak on our way back. The total journey wound up being about 9:15 with 4300 feet of gain and about 17.5 miles.
