Ascent Trip Report

This was an easier hike than I was expecting and the terrain could have been all class 1-2 (I elected to do some class 3 that I could have walked around). The view was also better than I expected - Frenchman Mountain only blocked out views of downtown and Summerlin, but the Strip, Red Rock, and the Spring Mountains were all clearly visible.
