Ascent Trip Report

Climbed Mt. Hamlin, Baxter peak and across the Knife Edge to Pamola peak with Jeff. Perfect day - a light breeze to keep us cool - clear skies with just a few clouds. Great views, though a bit hazy. Climb up Hamlin ridge was a challenge with lots of scrambles - but fun! Rocks on Baxter and across Knife Edge put my balance to the test. But made it across in good fast time with out falling. Lots of fun scrambles throughout the hike.
