Ascent Trip Report

Mountaineers trip on a hot smoky day. Absolutely no views; we could barely make out Rachel Lake. This is a tough slog to the summit block, but very fun rock scramble when you finally make it there. Well worn boot path is pretty easy to follow this time of year. There were just a few places where you have to pay attention. At the summit block, make sure to curve far right - almost as far as you can go - and climb up through notch. The rock is very firm and not too much exposure. Lots of flying ants at the summit. Just about 8h car to car.
