Ascent Trip Report

Great hike up by the brothers with John. Did loop from Garden over the Brothers to Big Slide, then over to Yard, and down to JBL. Was blood-pumping, sunny, beautiful day for a hike. Excellent views of the lower and upper range.
There were no views or sign that we could see on the summit of Yard. The hike down to JBL seemed to take forever, but was pleasant, the trail was in great shape. There was a water source about a quarter of the way down Yard toward JBL, a little waterfall against exposed rock, then plenty of water toward the bottom with the junction of i believe the phelps trail about a mile or so from JBL.
