Ascent Trip Report

Standard hike and scramble up Summerlin Peak, except I climbed the final cliff face (probably Class 5.7 or so) in my hiking boots unroped, which proved more difficult than anticipated (especially since I didn't know how to rock climb at the time), got gripped, and nearly ended with a long fall.
