Ascent Trip Report

Rather than waste my time watching the Super Bowl, I decided to go hike a local peak. Instead of taking the standard route from the East, I headed up two ridges from the northwest. An easy hike, it had some surprisingly cool views of some steep western canyons I didn't even know were there.
