Ascent Trip ReportHave been wanting to bag this Peak forever. Finally decided to just do it. Grabbed a couple buddies and went for it this past weekend. Hiked from Carson Pass to Round Top Lake and then bushwhacked up to the open ridge where we found the trail. Steep ascent, nice leg burner, but easy enough. Reached the false summit and then dropped into a gap before scrambling up the south side of the summit block. Fun little class 3 scramble to the top. Amazing 360 views! No wind and swarms of butterflies on the summit. This hike lived up to all my expectations!
