Ascent Trip Report

I headed up Mt Emmons from the USFS Atwood Lake admin site where Duane and I were camped. I saw a marmot around 12,000 ft. The talus wasn't too bad and only a few rocks moved. Not bad for 2,000 ft of talus... Extra elevation gain is from campsite in Painter Basin to Trail Rider Pass on the way to our base camp near Atwood.
