Ascent Trip ReportDid a loop from Chantry Flat past Sturtevant Falls, Spruce Grove, Newcomb Pass to Newcomb Peak. Peak is not a nice one. Reversed route to Newcomb Pass and toward Spruce Grove but turned off to Sturtevant Camp, then Hoegee's Camp. At Hoegee's we realized that the Lower Winter Creek Trail would take us to the bottom of the initial road we went down, so we went up to the Upper Winter Creek Trail and followed that to the parking lot. Got Mt Zion, too. It was a warm day but most of the route is shaded so it didn't feel bad. The bugs are really starting to get annoying now.
