Ascent Trip Report

Bagged Fox Mountain on the way to Condor Peak. Gorgeous day, clear views all around. The use trail heading up to Condor was difficult trace going up because it had faded so much, but just follow the ridge/south face up, and you can't miss the summit bumps. The register is on the western bump. Keep an eye out for bees!
