Ascent Trip Report

Basically a leisurely hike to summit, taking some optional ridgeline scrambles along the way. Negligible snow at peak, excellent visibility. 9.5 miles round trip distance.

Took some wrong turns descending, but managed to get back on track before things got dangerous. Fell face-first right before the end of the descent while hopping rock-to-rock, but managed to catch myself with my hands (landed in pushup position) before nearly taking a rock to the chest. I was lucky to only land a minor scrape on my shin!

No wildlife or other hikers seen... 10/10 would definitely hike again
