Ascent Trip Report

This was a relatively short, but steep hike to a great summit. I wished the hike had real scrambling or at least solid rock, as much of the hike was on steep loose scree, but still very doable. The route was very well beaten and cairned so following it was not an issue. The views from the summit were great. On the way back, part of our party climbed Ten Ewe Mountain, and that proved more difficult.
