Ascent Trip Report

I started at the Cora Lake trailhead and hiked up past the lake to the summit. There was still lots of snow above 4500' but the route follows the ridgeline all the way to the summit, so it was easy to stay on track. On the way down, I went off trail and headed straight down the side of the ridge to save a few miles but encountered two bands of cliffs that I had to negotiate so I didn't save any time.
