Ascent Trip Report

Took Mount Rose Trail to TRT just above falls and up to the ridge. Took the excellent Houghton Trail for 3/4 mile on ridge up to the summit.

Beautiful sunny and breezy weather. Made some new friends near the waterfall and spent the day with them. The water was flowing at Galena Falls and plenty in the stream. Very lovely and scenic route through meadows with nice colorful rock formations and escarpments. Didn't find a register or benchmark. Big rock pile with a hole that looked like where one might have been. Great views of mountains, lakes and meadows.
