Ascent Trip Report

Nice trip with Greg rained on and off. The trail in gets confusing in several places as so many 'hikers' use illegal campsites along the brook. Those areas are quite trampled...too bad. Coolest part was a friendly visit by a Gray Jay or Canadian Jay on the lookout. Headed over to middle then south peak. Failed the attempt on Oceolas the next day due to Gregs locked up knee.
