Ascent Trip Report

Started from Greeley Pond Trail. It was a four hour round trip. Very easy trail but once you start climbing to the ridge, it is steep and when rocks are wet can be slippery. Some people coming down were slipping and getting hurt. Post holing is needed. This trail gets lots of traffic so before a tree trunk, you will need poles to help yourself up and over since at times it is deep. Bug spray is needed. Lots at the top even with a breeze. Take time to see at look outs. Good views. No view at the summit. There is some class 3 moves where you have to use your hands to pull yourself up over rock. After the junction at Greeley Ponds, you will start climbing and not soon afterwards you will have rock all the way to the ridge line.
