Ascent Trip Report

Great trail. It is clearly marked all the way to the cutoff to the peak. After the cutoff to the peak, stay to the left of the cabin and then scramble up the boulders to the top. I didn't see or really even look for a register. You must register at the Ranger station and they give you a trail map, but signage and well marked trails take you up. There is a water spicket at Round Valley but they encourage you to filter that water. I used probably 1 liter of water, but would have liked to have had more.
