Ascent Trip Report

I set out with my brother to tackle this 4,000 footer and we smashed it! i have had my eye on this peak for a while now and we really wanted to try it so we said lets do the loop. so we banked 3 4,000 footers but the little haystack doesn't count so we got 2 down on the list. i loved this hike, a great hike, not to long, a perfect 360 degree view at the top along the whole ridge and the 6th most highest peak in the 4,000 list. a great hike I have had my eye on it for a while. I'd love to do it again.
