Ascent Trip ReportMost of the east slope is easy to scramble. I went up via north Hogback and came down via the east ridge of Hogback. Saw a goat near the summit but it didn't seem to be too interested in me. Acres and acres of lupine in bloom.
A new chair lift comes right up on to the north side of Hogback. Should be an easy tag in the winter with a lift ticket.
