Ascent Trip Report

We hiked in to September Morning Lake, day one and camped. We took the trail up to Sundance Pass and left the trail for both summits of Silver Run. This is a much more grueling hike than the topo maps lead you to think. I was thinking the Sundance Pass was going to be the hardest part of this climb, but it was the easy part! Class 2 bouldering, and in parts very steep, all the way from Sundance Pass.
