Ascent Trip Report

Drove in to the the Henry's Fork trailhead from Evanston, Wy, in the morning. Hike along the creek and set up camp near Dollar Lake. Tried to follow the use trail across the plateau south of Gunsight Pass but found it hard. Rested near Andersson Pass before pushing up the scramble to the summit. Same way back and slept a good nights sleep before hiking out.

The first highpoint during the 2004 vacation.
