Ascent Trip Report

From the top of Stonewall, decided to make a run at Little Stonewall from the descent. Without pulling any prior data I began to look for a peak-baggers trail from the logical trail intersection with the pass but found none. I crashed through the brush a bit, but it looked way to rough. (Go figure the peak-baggers trail is there somewhere from later reports I read). I continued to head down the trail looking for openings. eventually, I found what appeared to be a trail (most likely a game trail) and followed it till it died right in the middle of 6 foot impassible brush. gave up and headed for the next peak. Mileage included on Stonewall loop.
