Ascent Trip Report

I got to GBNP too late in the day on day one to try Wheeler Peak, so I figured I would just hike up to the saddle and try to acclimate. Once I got to the ridge, Bald Mountain looked to be a pretty easy one to knock out. There is no trail at all, just climb over scree until you get to the top.
