Ascent Trip Report

An early season outing with my son Ryan and Duane's older son Scott. Hiked in from the Smith Brook TH to Lake Valhalla on snow, then climbed the ridge to the recently named Mt. McCausland, then went down the east ridge and slopes back to the PCT.

This is from a print so there's no year and month on it like if it were a slide. Ryan on the left. You can see the peak name on the register. Photo by Duane.
