Ascent Trip ReportI had heard Ross was tough, so I powered up with water and some trail mix on the summit of Baden-Powell before continuing. The use trail from Baden-Powell to Ross is easy to find and is one of the more fun ridge routes I've found. Between Baden-Powell and the first bump there's a really nice breeze and some really spectacular views. I guessed early that the farthest bump on the ridge would be my destination, so I was never frustrated by how far away Ross was, nor how much elevation I had to lose to get there.
Coming back was less enjoyable, and the summit of Ross wasn't great, but overall I was happy that I did this peak because I loved hiking the ridge so much. I ran into the only person I'd see all day near the summit of Baden-Powell on the return.
