Ascent Trip Report

This approach looks scary but it really isnt. Head for the ridge between the lakes; either straight up or traverse. You will reach an open meadow. Proceed towards the peak. Look for a day-use trail with cairns (I found it on my descent).
Its a Class I Class 2 climb all the way. Hiking shoes woth good traction and hiking poles are recommended. Echo Peak has some of the 360 views!
