Ascent Trip Report

Mix of sun a clouds with a couple of brief showers. Views were hazy but still excellent. Temperature was pleasant. Relatively easy ascent to Yard Mountain via the Phelps and Klondike Notch trail. Descent from Big Slide over the Bothers was slow due to the steep pitch. Awesome views from the Brothers.
