Ascent Trip ReportThis was another great and successful LVMC (Las Vegas Mountaineers Club) outing. The routefinding was straightforward, at least after getting out of the forest. The hill going from 8800' to 10,800' was brutal - it was steep enough to be brutal both going up and down. Once over that, it was a relatively short and easy hike to the summit. The views from the summit were incredible.
