Ascent Trip ReportAs you can see from my track, we went around the lake on the northwest side. The hike from the trailhead to the lake is delightful. Going around the lake was a pain, as the brush was pretty bad at times, and I stupidly lost my Garmin eTrex GPS in the brush on the way back. Once you get a few hundred yards from the lake it gets substantially better.
I found the climb from the lake to the ridge to be class 1 to 3, bordering on class 4 at times, with some loose rock. Once you gain the ridge, it’s a pretty easy walk to the high point and peak. On the way up, I tended to use the east side of the gully, but on the way down, I went farther west to take advantage of the shrubs and trees to slow my descent down the very steep and slippery slope.
