Ascent Trip Report

A great thru hike via Indian Pass. We had 2 groups, one came in from each side, we met at Wallface, climbed up the climbers path (marked by a herdpath on the Tahawau side of Wallface) and then bushwhacked to the summit. From here we swapped keys, hiked out the other side and met up for dinner after. Roughly 13 miles with some fun exploring.
