Ascent Trip Report

Camped out near Cottonwood lake (dispersed about 2-3 miles up from lake). Good rainfall night before. Began hike at 7:15, summitted at 10:15, down by 12:20. LOTS of great campsites up around 11,000 feet. I will probably head up there sometime and camp, especially if any of my friends want to bag Yale (maybe I can grab Mascot Peak).
