Ascent Trip Report

Following Skyline Drive heading north we reached impassible snow drifts in the road at a pass at around 10,880 feet. We parked here and hiked the road about 3 miles to the base of North Tent. In the process we lost about 500' of elevation. We then hiked up the open slopes to North Tent before following the ridge to South Tent. On our descent we angled under North Tent, to avoid climbing it again, and worked our way back to Skyline Drive, and back to my truck.
