Ascent Trip Report

From Artist's Bluff, I took the Veterans' Trail to Bald Mountain (while dodging melting snow dripping off the trees and onto my neck and back). At a col, I made a short but steep and rugged (but fun) climb to the open summit, which had even better views than the Bluff IMHO. Spent a little bit there and then booked it down the Loop Trail back to my car at the Echo Lake parking lot.
