Ascent Trip Report

Trail is easy to find, follow, and is well marked. Once at the summit I followed the ridge towards Mt. Rose and found excellent views looking down the north face cliffs. Lots of Sky Pilot. Only saw one other hiker (he was through-hiking the TRT). Left late and used my headlamp for the last half hour. Did not find a register. Would be very easy to combine with Relay Peak.
