Ascent Trip Report10 to 12 Grizzlies (possible repeats on the way back)! Accidently got within 30 yards of a smaller one (and 100 yards of 3 others) while watching bighorn, he didnt notice until I backed off and then he was visibly startled and cowered away. Others watched me disinterestedly and went back to overturning rocks for moths. A giant near the summit almost had me turn around, but he slowely walked across the basin and I stayed on the other side of the summit ridge. Remember many of the giant boulders you see may in fact be grizzlies upon closer inspection. An amazing experience!
