Ascent Trip Report

Took Switchback Trail to Hurricane Ridge Trail to saddle at Victor Pass. Scrambled up the East side of Middle Peak. Fun scramble with some loose rock and a few tricky moves. Goats everywhere. Reached the summit in 3 hours. Had to wait on top of Middle Peak for a bit in order to let a small group of goats pass that were coming down off the top of Mt. Angeles. Had watched them with binoculars earlier surprise a climber ascending Mt. Angeles. Headed west to a series of scrambles up Mt. Angeles.
