Ascent Trip Report

Took the blu. Plentry of MUd, but I love mud.e trail at split to right. Some tough scrambles right before the top. Was challenging but fun. Summit was awesome 360 view but the low clouds dampened it a bit. Took the yellow trail back and this is a MUST as there are more views and cliffs on the yellow section. Lots of spring runoff had us bushwacking around flooded areas on trail.
