Ascent Trip Report

Rather wet cloudy looking day. Most of the climbing is done right at the beginning. Impressive rock faces and nice waterfall breather spot just off trail. Mid section after stairs is more pleasant and gradual, follows cliff edge off and on but mostly under tree cover. Cross old burn or cut area then a little more climbing to summit. Snowfall near top. 100 yards forest scramble to rocky summit knob. Valley cleared out enough for a view of Crystal Mt and nearby. Saw solo mountain goat from a distance. Good moderate hike. Would have liked to have done longer loop but my party members declined.
