Ascent Trip Report

Great trip with Heather, Joe and Jeff. We headed up Huntington Ravine - a great (scary) trail. Fun scrambles and we made it to the top unscathed. Started the day under sunny skies and great views. By the top of Huntington Ravine, the clouds settled for our trip across the Alpine Garden. We descended below the clouds on Davis Path and made it to Isolation in good time. Scary looking clouds appeared so we opted not to descend Glen Boulder as planned and just went out Rocky Branch. Crossings weren't too tricky - but we still got wet - especially when the skies opened and it poured for the last hour. All in all, a great day though. About 8 hours for the whole hike.
