Ascent Trip Report

Went up the Crest Trail to Liberty Pass, scrambled to the first peak on the traverse, dropped down a hundred feet or so to avoid an awful bushwack. Scrambled to the summit from there, descended the south face to Liberty Lake, went down the Crest Trail. Smoke from wildfires made visibility almost nonexistent, beautiful views nonetheless.
