Ascent Trip Report

We Started out at the Garden Parking Lot at 1130 am and climbed via the Brothers. The first hour is steep and tough, then gradual until you reach the peak. There are many spots to take breaks and enjoy the incredible views. Each view from the brothers was great and the views from the peak were incredible. We peaked at 220 pm. We decided to go down the Brothers also, hoping it would be quicker, but it was almost as difficult as the ascent, and almost took the same time. In the end, it was a great hike and I would highly recommend it.
