Ascent Trip Report

We started hiking at elevation 2,320 feet. The net gain was about 1,940 feet, but there are losses that need to be regained both up and down.

Hike is logistically easy but a little tougher than it appears from afar. The talus slopes can be loose, and the rocky ridge takes time to pass, although there are no cliffs. There is scrambling, but nothing that is Class 3.
