Ascent Trip Report

The 8 miles into Warm lake is really more like 10. The trail to get to Warm Lake is generally flat to mild grade until you get to the climbers path that heads to Warm lake, at which point the trail gets goat steep. The path to Warm Lake is generally unmarked and leads to cross country route finding. Once at Warm Lake, the route to the summit is straight forward but can be slow going along the ridge. The route is faint but possible to discern.
