Ascent Trip Report

This was my first ascent of Greyrock after the High Park Fire. As expected, the area was completely transformed, with large tracts of forest burned. Interesting to see straw laid down for soil reclamation. I hadn't realized that was part of the process until I did this hike. Views from the summit are amazing as always, but seeing once thick forest burned nearly bare is a sobering reminder of nature's power.
