Ascent Trip ReportWent the standard route in a beautiful summer day. We car camped the night before at wheeler peak campground. We didn't realize that you can hit the trail from either the trailhead or campground. It is as advertised. A beautiful class one trail hike, normal terrain, rocks and tight scree on most of the ascent. It was a burner though, you certainly have to earn the final ascent
I loved it, great hike, highly recommended.
Note if camping this campground fills up. We got real lucky and got last spot about five pm Friday.
