Ascent Trip Report

Worked until 2:00, then hauled ass over to Pass Cr turnoff. Unloaded 4 wheeler and road it the 8.7 miles up to the trailhead (Pass Cr Road then FS Rd 796). Awesome climb. Last 1200' of hand and foot hold scramble was what I needed. Just under 2 hour to the top and an hour plus down. Loved the climb. Left summited by 6:00pm and back home by 10:30pm. Easy to follow trail to 11K' then pick your way through the steep climb to the top. Fail right if not sure.
