Ascent Trip Report

Headed out from First Creek Trailhead. Numerous social trails made route-finding difficult in First Creek Canyon. Spent a large amount of time bushwacking before deciding to just scramble over the boulders in the wash. Left the canyon next to the large black waterfall to scramble up to the summit. From this point forward, the hike was entirely class 3 and class 4. Summit was beautiful, with the largest cliff dropoffs I've seen to date. Took the more standard First Creek Canyon route down, which was much more tame.
