Ascent Trip Report

Started at the south end of Mineral Range and went mostly along ridgeline until the approach to Granite. Attempted several routes to the summit on west side unsuccessfully. We were able to find a pass to the east side and the approach was much much easier.
This route was the most dense bushwhack I've ever done. We averaged 1mph or less. It was ridiculous. My legs look like a feral cat got hold of me. I would highly recommend NOT doing Granite Peak ever.
