Ascent Trip ReportFrom our campsite on Big McGee Lake we ascended Hopkins Pass which had good use trail. Then contoured around upper Hopkins Basin just below the big rocks to the base of Crocker and ascended from there. On reaching the summit I was really fatigued. Not sure the peak is really that hard. May have been because we ascended Red Slate the previous day, we were fighting high winds from Hopkins pass to the peak, and I was suffering the trots. Nice peak with great views.
