Ascent Trip Report

Really fun little hike. The walk across the desert to the base of step later was so beautiful cause of all the different color flowers and the landscape was amazing. Once at the base of Stepladder Mountain, it was a short steep climb to the base of the ledges which ended up being fun to climb. The rock is extra grippy and easy to climb on. There might have been a very small class 3 section very close to the top, but nothing hard at all. The summit itself was amazing, with breath taking 360 views for such a small peak.
