Ascent Trip Report

Up Hurricane Creek then Thorp creek. I followed the Thorpe Creek Trail until I found the broad but steep west ridge. Its a lot of loose fist sized rock you will be ascending, but it really goes pretty fast. Hike up the west ridge is steep and gains elevation briskly. Summit looks closer than it actually is. Descended directly west from the summit instead of returning to the easier ascent ridge. Steep, and ok scree skiiing on way down.
