Ascent Trip Report

Snuck away from Tri-Cities and work for a day with my girlfriend and brother to get in a quick wallowas ridgewalk. Still some snow and lots of mud this first weekend of July.

I will say this about East Peak, if you're in the area with only a small amount of time and enough money to ride the tram this is a great experience. The ridgewalk is a piece of cake, and the views are incredible. I have been on this ridge three times now, and have enjoyed it each and every time.
