Ascent Trip Report

This trip was a challenge - the trail becomes almost impossible to find/follow once it leaves the channel and is supposed to attain the ridge. Both before and after that section, the trail is pretty good (and easy). The summit views were spectacular in all directions. On the way down, we tried an easier route - and it was easier, but unfortunately one key turn was not labeled and we ended up going a couple miles out of our way. It did make what would have been a simple hike a lot more challenging and exciting.
