Ascent Trip Report

All I can remember of this was heading out the TRT/PCT from Echo Chalet, hopped off trail to ascend to the peak, got a little creative with my return route. Tried to stay high all the way to Flagpole peak and then descend, but ended up coming down the cliffs (yes cliffs) free scamble style to the Echo housing tract at the North end of Lower Echo Lake. Fun hike. Do NOT use my GPX, it is not safe at all.
