Ascent Trip Report

East side approach. This was a involved hike, some big ups, some big downs. Lots of wind at the summit and a fair number of ticks on the way back to the vehicle along with some wild horses to keep us company. One of the big drops was a 350 footer that had to be regained on the way back.
