Ascent Trip Report

Started at Rock Lk TH with two others in party about 0830. Immediate elevation gain over tight switchbacks. Beautiful colors/lakes. Saw two out of three bears (seen by party) during ascent. First off trail bushwack for me which was fun. Summit was windy/cold with nice views partly obstructed by some cloud cover. Descent by alternate path turned out well, seemed to take more time getting down switchbacks, more than I remember. Back at TH by 1600.
