Ascent Trip Report

A quick trip up Breakneck with a buddy from Mercy. We were the only ones on the trail and had a great view from the summit. Nice, quiet and peaceful. We could still see some sporadic snow on the peak across the river. We took 5 minutes to enjoy the views from the ledge below the flag and spent around 10 minutes on the summit before starting our decent.
