Ascent Trip ReportPlanning to climb via Eagle Slide, but was too rainy/wet when we reached the base of the slide after taking the herd path/creek bed. Rather than backtrack, we bushwhacked up the mountainside to the trail on ridge above. Then summited Giant, hiked to Rocky Peak and then back to trail junction near Giant before descending to camp. Rained all day.
