Ascent Trip Report

We continued on from the subpeak up to the highest point. The trail turns into spaghetti past the saddle, and everyone seems to pick their preferred way to go. There was a 4ish year old kid walking down with his parents that didn't like how steep it was. We got a good view, then headed back to the saddle and then to the south because we had extra time. The trails off the south are gravelly and slippery, but we reconnected with better trails, then looped back to the north where we parked.
