Ascent Trip Report

***Private Outing***

Took Fish Creek Trail to Grinnell Mtn and Lake Peak. Had trouble finding second (higher) shortcut to bypass switchbacks; found it and got back on it after about an hour. Very well marked use trail to summit of Grinnel from the Fish Creek Saddle Campground (FCSC). Headed back down to FCSC after Grinnell for a short, simple, XC ascent to Lake Peak. Attempted 10K Ridge from Lake across ridge, but turned back about 0.5 mile before summit to avoid having to cross this section in the dark. Mileage and gain includes Grinnell, Lake, and unsuccessful attempt at 10K.
