Ascent Trip Report

Paul took the Lillian Brook Herd Path back to the car at Elk Lake. Jeff and I kept going. Pretty decent pace. Nice views. A couple interesting outcrops and things to climb through. There were a few nice open spots to look through. Nice views of the Beckhorn and back towards Elk Lake. Trail went along the ridgeline, was pretty exposed in a couple of spots.
