Ascent Trip Report

Enjoyed a great hike with friends including one who was finishing her 46 on Big Slide. Weather was very hot and humid but the open rock hike to Big Slide offered a nice breeze and raspberries! Started at the Garden at 8:30, hiked to the Brothers, Big Slide and then onto Yard and returned via the Klondike trail and JBL to the Garden lot. The hike was just over 11.7 miles with 7.5 hours of hiking and raspberry picking and 1.5 hours enjoying the views from the Brothers and celebrating on Big Slide.
