Ascent Trip Report

This was a quick, short ascent with the purpose of scouting the Y Coulier for a later "real" climb up Pikes. It was a pleasent little hike with some nice views from the top, but very crowded as usual. We were the only hikers at the top, and even got a shocked reaction from someone that we actually walked to the top instead of drive or take the train. Hilarious.
