Ascent Trip Report

This was a two day backpack to Ruby Dome, with East Ruby Dome (a.k.a. Stone Armchair Peak) thrown in for fun. First day was a backpack up to Griswold Lake - about 3100' vertical and 4.7 miles in 3:17. We spent the night trying to avoid mosquitoes, then set out for the peaks. East Ruby is a scramble on boulders from a shared saddle with Ruby. Great view at the top - even better than Ruby Dome!

GPS track shown is for the whole outing (both days, both peaks).
