Ascent Trip Report

After summiting Friday we continued on to Balsam Cap. Short hike and fairly easy for a bushwack. Found the canister and signed in. We made our way back to the car by hiking down between the cul of Rocky. Came out right where we went in to summit Friday. Long day of hiking (16mi.) but a great day was had by all.
