Ascent Trip Report

CMC hike. We saw nobody else climbing Fletcher, but we could see plenty of hikers on Quandary. The weather was a little fussy, mostly cloudy with some light snow higher up (some of the higher peaks in the area have had a light dusting of snow in the last few days). It's a great hike, lots of solitude, not too difficult, and great views of the surrounding mountains.
