Ascent Trip Report

Hike the highline trail from Logan to the bus stop. Decided to take the side trail to overlook Upper Grinnell Lake. But instead of taking the trail, decided to bushwhack straight up. Slope got steeper and steeper and scree was everywhere. Terrible footing. Several risky maneuvers later and we made it to the top. Decided to go down the trail..yea..good idea.
