Ascent Trip ReportPart of a Big Three day hike - McKinley, Santa Cruz, and San Rafael. One warning - on Santa Cruz, go almost to the top of the bump before Santa Cruz (Point 5484'), but turn right just before the top to stay on the firebreak that drops down to the saddle next to Santa Cruz Peak. When at the saddle, look for a use trail in the trees - there is a trail was clipped at one time and it makes the final climb from the saddle to the peak a lot easier if you find it and follow it up to the ducked route in the rocks that you follow to the summit.
