Ascent Trip ReportAfter Cascade and Porter, we were completely hooked on the peaks and the allure of the 46 was irresistible. For our next venture, I wanted to try and get 2 peaks, and Giant + Rocky Peak Ridge seemed like as good a place as any to try. I knew a few people who had done it before (Giant anyway), so I figured we shouldn't have a problem.
We were able to get a fairly early start (7 am), and the trailhead parking lot on 73 was pretty empty. It was a nice morning, kind of muggy, and forecasted to be hot and muggy. At the time, we only had our camera daypacks, so no hydration system, so we were carrying a ton of water bottles each.
The ascent was considerably steeper and more difficult than Cascade/Porter, but we were feeling good and were able to make 2.8 miles to the summit in about 3 hours. Slow, but not too bad for us I would say. We were using trekking poles on this trip that was recommended to us, and I found them to be very helpful, especially on the descents.
The Giant summit was nice, but the black flies were unbearable. We lounged for a few minutes, taking in the view and a pb&j sandwich. After which I took some photos, then we were on our way to Rocky Peak Ridge.
