Ascent Trip Report

What a fun couple of peaks to hike. Must love scrambling, bushwhacking, sliding off/over boulders, and views - man, I mean some very cool views. One needs to kind of feel their way around up and to the trails. Google Earth saved me on this one. I can't really put the numbers in below since I climbed Lawson's Peak on the same hike. Total hike is 7.83 miles, total ascent of 2495 and max elevation was 3858. Total time was about 4 1/2 hours.
