Ascent Trip Report

First time up Strawberry Peak from Redbox. First 2 miles are very easy and runable along a cliff ridge. Mile 2-3.5 was very steep and slowed the pace significantly from the junction to the peak. Went left at the junction up to the peak first, summited, and then tried to go down the mountaineer's route but backed out. Wasn't safe and I was literally the only one on the mountain. Nixed the plan to do the full loop through the meadows and instead came back down to the junction, ran down to the meadow and back up to the car.
