Ascent Trip Report

Nice jaunt...great views. Devil's Kitchen looked incredible. The whole valley to the east did, actually.

Met two old dudes and a guys skiing down a single 200-ft down 15-ft across line that didn't really work. Rod made his first ascent and took breaks every 50 ft but made it! It was awesome. And Larry (both in their 50s+) logged his 32nd ascent of the peak! He'd been up and down every way, and told me if I wanted to mix it up (which I did), to shoot east down from Wolf Pass and link up with the Nebo Bench trail and take that back. I did, and it was nice to get in new area. Saw some hunters, but didn't get shot which is a big plus. Picked up some trash (cheap shit beer bottles/cans, granola bar wrappers, chew cans - wonder who its from?) on the way out. Larry pointed out every peak and was awesome!

Good hike though! Very manageable...we started at 1130 haha.
