Ascent Trip Report

Started from the peak of Mt Osceola. Lots of loose rocks up to the chimney so it was a little slow going. Once we got to the chimney, we had two choices for a descent. We could either go right down the chimney or we could take a path just the left of the chimney which was not as sharp of a drop off. On the way down, I chose to take the left path down on the way over to the East peak. The rest of the way was really easy going, slightly muddy and a few rocks on the last part up to the peak but really great. We sadly didn't make it to East peak in time to see the flag, luckily we got to see the flag on Osceola so we weren't to saddened. We then turned around and headed back the same way we came, but this time I chose to go up the chimney. An exciting trail for only a mile of distance.
