Ascent Trip Report

Hiked up to Secret Lake from our campsite in Alta and then bushwhacked and scrambled up to the saddle between Sugarloaf and Devil's Castle. From there followed the ridge rather carefully to the final scramble/climb. View from the summit was amazing, with all of Alta Valley spread out to the north and Pittsburg Lake sparkling over a thousand feet below us to the south.
