Ascent Trip Report

Accidentally continued straight on the Hatchery Creek Trail to be routed on an approach loop through the Badlands and near Lake Augusta. The addition was the most beautiful part of the climb, with golden larches in peak, as well as a long stretch of significantly recovered forest fire territory.

Summit scramble was straight forward with loose rock, especially the side approaching Big Jim lakes.
