Ascent Trip ReportGot a late start. Headed up the Mt. Sterling trail with the Great Explorer to prep for our overnight on Mt. Leconte on Wednesday. Pretty steep for TGE, but a very nice day for a hike. Didn't see much wildlife, but the views were great. TGE made it to the Benton-McKay trail and waited while I went up to the fire tower. Went down and crossed the gap to Scottish Mountain.
