Ascent Trip Report

Hike to Snowhawk Cabin in an attempt to reach/climb Temptation Peak. Budgeted 12 total hours to reach cabin, summit, and return to cabin for UH-60 pick up. No obvious trail head. Bush whacked for about four hours orienting with MGRS map and compass until we met with the trail 2-3 miles in (near burned down cabin). Followed trail out to upper cabin and reached it about eight hours in. Unable to summit Temptation and return in time for flight. Went as far as the first Spur SE of the Upper Cabin. Another attempt deserves two days minimum with an overnight in or near the upper cabin.
