Ascent Trip Report

Hiked from First Creek Canyon. The bouldering in the canyon was intense and a bit exposed at times. There were a few cairns but the path of least resistance will get you through pretty easily. Once out of the canyon, there is a use trail heading north right along the limestone boundary. Once at the top, route finding is fairly easy with plenty of cairns marking the way. There were many patches of snow at this point which added to the challenge. Views from the summit were some of the best I've seen in a while. Awesome day for a hike.
