Ascent Trip ReportHuge vertical, tremendously steep mountain. Views from the top are more beautiful than I could have imagined. This is a unique hike since the route down involves jumping and sliding in the "scree."
Well worth the immense effort needed to summit. Especially considering the help gravity gives on the way down! One of the favorite hikes of my life.
