Ascent Trip ReportVia Monument trail over Eureka Creek. Be sure to take 4 quarts of water on at Eureka Creek! I took nearly 3 quarts and ran out of water 2+ hours before Lake of the Woods, severe dehydration duress. Was able to recover overnight and complete the climb but was iffy for a few hours. Use Sean Albert's GPS track, modify it to take his higher route through the cliff bands up Monument. 10 hour day round trip including Lake. Glad I won't be hiking that steep trail again!
