Ascent Trip Report

Good hike with some gusty winds above 10,500ft. It was pretty calm on the summit though.
There is still water available at the lower end of Vivian Creek and High Creek has some flow as well. Bugs up to 7,200ft afterwards none making this hike very pleasant. The last mile out was awful though, after losing already 4000ft the last steep section made my knees scream.
