Ascent Trip Report

Hiked from the unmarked Grasshopper Trailhead near Box Canyon Horse Camp up the Grasshopper Trail to the upper junction with the Chucksney Mountain Loop and then headed north on the loop. Left the trail and bushwacked uphill to the south summit and found the summit rock cairn and "registry" in a glass bottle. Searched about a bit to verify this was the high point. Bushwacked north to regain the trail. Left the trail for a short crosscountry hike to the north summit. Regained the Chucksney Mountain Loop trail and completed the loop back to the trailhead.
