Ascent Trip Report

I went a different approach than previous trip reports, although I really didn't mean to. I went up between the two creeks, and stayed left (south) of the large finger between Bromaghin and Camas highpoint, scrambling up to the ledge. This appears to be a shorter distance, but steeper (1.79 miles), and has very little extra elevation gain. I came down the route that I thought was in previous reports, although I didn't think it was much fun. I was going to attempt Bromaghin peak but thought upon approach it may have been too technical for a solo ascent.
