Ascent Trip ReportHike the Syncline Loop Trail clock-wise. Only saw one other hiker. The scramble section was a blast! Definitely class 2...maybe two class 3 moves but not much exposure so I don't think I would call it anything more than class 2 scramble. We took plenty of water because we heard many hikers need rescue from this trail. Weather was just perfect so it really wasn't bad of a hike at all. So many great views on this trail (not high point vistas, but views). We also saw three big horned sheep...so more sheep than people. We also did the two overlooks.
