Ascent Trip Report

An excellent day for a hike up this somewhat challenging peak. I used the TH at North Emerson Campground. Distance turned out to be 10.6 miles and 4,232 total elevation gain round trip. Summit registers getting full but still plenty of space left. Started out at 7:30 and 40 degrees and summitted a leisurely four hours later at about 55 - 60 degrees. Return took less than two hours. Trail is steep in places but in good shape and once off-trail, the footing is good until the scree at about 9,300'.
