Ascent Trip ReportLoop hike including Oriflamme, Oriflamme North Peak and Roost Benchmark. Started from Sunrise Highway across from Ranch gate. Green fields and lots of water flowing in streams. Plaque and boots for memorial still there near the highway. Came across a naked man with his dog skinny dipping in stream. Said he had been back in there for 6 days through rain, snow and wind. Drove his truck in since gate was closed but not locked. One summit register on east rocks was soaking wet. Small register on other side was dated 2006 and only had signatures on 3 pages.
