Ascent Trip Report

I climbed Medicine Bow with my friends Jaime & Oscar, then I split with them and climbed Sugarloaf from the Lewis Lake/Lakes Trail Junction. There was a little scrambling on mirror-smooth quartzite, but I reached the top faster than I expected. I descended the southwest ridge, and met up with Jaime and Oscar at Mirror Lake, then we headed back to Lake Marie trailhead.
