Ascent Trip Report

A nice trip...

Camped out in the back of the Taco the night before which perhaps wasn't the best idea considering how cold it got.

Left early, around 6:30 and reached the top by 8:40. Headed back down, met three other parties and reached the truck by 10:30

A few "staircasey" areas that work your legs a bit but all in all it was a nice simple hike.

The view from the firetower at the top was nice!
