Ascent Trip Report

Great weather. Started at last chairlift by Phoenix rest. Start time was around 8:00 A.M. Total time to top and back to car was 8.5 hours. We were a group of 15 boy scouts. Saw Golden eagles, some big horn sheep, and marmots. Lots of snow patches that were waist deep but easy to navigate around them.
