Ascent Trip Report

The Mount Rose trail is more challenging than the numbers would suggest because the first 3.5 miles gain virtually no net elevation, so the last stretch is steeper than one might expect.

On the descent, we thought we'd get Chocolate Peak and were surprised to find a trail covering most of the route. No bushwhacking was needed. And there was an interesting cabin, apparently used during ski season, right near Contact Pass (see GPS)
