Ascent Trip Report

We started at the Blue Lake TH and hiked south side of the Blue Lake then headed to the Hidden Meadow, rounded east of the North Duffer Peak area then traverse up to the summit by avoiding the snow patches. View from summit was beautiful. We hike down directory from the summit to open area and avoid snow patches to get back to the Hidden Meadow then Blue Lake, we cross the lake at the middle of the lake.
