Ascent Trip Report

I parked my camper (and started hiking) at about 6,880' in Elbow Canyon then used Lopez's route from his Idaho Climbing Guide; the road beyond my start is not much rougher. The GPS track shows my descent route which was a better then my ascent route though the lower canyon. There is an intermittent use trail and open forest from an old logging operation. GPS says 8.5 miles roundtrip with total vertical gain of 4,200'. That said, Ken Jone's route looks like a superb ridge walk on Google Earth - wish I'd noticed that earlier.
