Ascent Trip Report

We started from La Sal Pass and gained about 2,000 feet between there and the summit. It would have been completely silent up there were it not for the cows; we could hear them for the entire duration of the hike! Apparently they weren't used to visitors. The trail split off from that of Mt. Peale relatively soon and we began a long series of switchbacks to gain those 2,000 feet. The trail abruptly ends about 2/3 of the way up, but by then we could clearly see the way to the top. The final 400-500 feet or so are covered in slippery rocks, making it a difficult last leg. The views from the top are extremely rewarding, however.
