Ascent Trip Report

Started at Sonora Pass and followed the trail to the south. We went off trail about 1/4 mile in to cut off about a mile of hiking. There's an unmaintained trail that does this, but we made our own way up sketchy loose Class 3. Had to dodge some boulders rolled down by my brother at times. We bagged 3 additional provisional peaks along the way including Leavitt West.
