Ascent Trip Report

Going up was pretty straightforward, though the loose rocks didn't make it too easy. Going back on the other hand, was considerably more challenging - the trail wasn't nearly as easy to keep, and the loose rocks made it slow going. Another challenge, both ways, was a loss of about 175 feet at one point on the ridgeline - and the slope was fairly steep on both sides!
