Ascent Trip Report

Started at 6:30 am at the junction of brook and now the log bridge. Some are loose. Use the bigger ones to cross. Hiked up the road took two hours to last parking lot. There are some good short cuts further up. Hike through the talus and through some snow up over until the trail to the ridge. This is tough so take your time. To the right take right another right with some class three moves and another tight. Then take before the last saddle to the top. Contiued to Conundrum which took half hour.
