Ascent Trip Report

Bagged this with Jeff on a fairly uneventful hike. It was a very quick hike with a start time of around 7:30a-8am and finishing just before 1pm. Beautiful day with gathering storm clouds forming before 10am (a bit early for Colorado) but the rain held off until we had completed the trip. Easy hike for the first mile but then fairly steep ascent gaining approx 3000 vertical feet in 2 miles.
