Ascent Trip Report

If only doing Hidden Peak, the west ridge is an easy hike with a little trivial class 3 scrambling. The trip from Monument Peak could involve a short trip with a rappel (so I've heard), or one can descend the northeast face, then skirt around the north side to the pass between it and Hidden Peak, from which, the terrain is class 1-2.
