Ascent Trip Report

Excellent hike up an easy trail with Christina.
On two previous occasions I had accended Giant using the Ridge trail. We went up a different way which was mostly tree covered and not exposed, the trail did not have the steepness of the ridge, and did not offer a lot of good views.
We decended on the Ridge trail and that one she did not like.
