Ascent Trip Report

Came from Upper Wolfjaw along Lower Range Trail. Descending Upper Wolfjaw is just lots of jumping down rocks, just be careful of your knees. The approach is a nice gentle trail that misleads you into thinking this route will be a cakewalk. Then you come upon a ladder going up a vertical rock face at the bottom of a large slide. The ladder gets you started but there is plenty of slide to scramble, lots of fun. Quite rewarding peak for your hard work with a large rock ledge protruding from the spruces looking SW at the rest of the Great Range that lies ahead of you.
