Ascent Trip Report

I parked at the parking lot east of Rattlesnake Lake and then hiked down to the lake. I wanted to start my gain from the water edge but the water was way low. I would guess around 905.

Total trip time to the ledges, then up the tower at the tallest East Peak and then back to the ledges for one last look and then back to car.......1 hr- 40 min up and 1 hr- 15 min down.
