Ascent Trip ReportSolo hike to Red Lake Peak. 3 day camping trip with a large group of Scouts on the other side of the highway and departed around 6:00 for the assent. I got to the top with snow shoes, however I did not climb the extra 30' on the rocky point. I was by myself and did not want to risk a fall without a buddy.
Beautiful views from the top. Awesome sunrise.
