Ascent Trip Report

Leisurely trip up Fletcher with Brett when he was still big. Ran into LVMC group lead by Barb & Tom McGibbon at the summit (before either of us was in the club). This one is a stroll up a maintained trail (the North Loop Trail) to an unmaintained trail where a log is cut in two. Look to the left for another downed log with a cairn/duck, then follow the path to the peak. We hit Raintree on the way up which added a bit of distance.
