Ascent Trip Report

this was the last one of day one on our hike, we actually slept at the top of this mtn. it was nice, but it was windy at the top. it is a easy woods walk from the other peaks (north and middle) i would recommend this hike to all ages. its not hard from the other peaks, but it does go into a slide and avalanche trail within a quarter mile of this trail downhill. so be careful, we plan to set off and get the two sleepers and white face and head down. but overall it was a great hike, and it wasn't hard at all. once you get to the avalanche opening it has the best view of the mountains a maybe 270 degree view it was pretty nice, we saw the sun go down it was great but do be careful if you do go down the avalanche trail...
