Ascent Trip Report

One-way GPS track to summit. Nice break at Rachel Lake. Outstanding hike! Zelda loved leading the 3 slow humans up there! This peak is advertised as a "scramble." Scramble is really stretching it. There is a use trail to the summit and nobody used hands for more than 1 unexposed 6 foot move where we handed the dog down and up. We saw 3 mountain goats just below the summit and took a lot of great pics!
