Ascent Trip ReportWe traversed the ridge from Sawtooth. Most of the traverse/ascent was a miserable sand slog. We hurried down when we heard thunder, and we waited out a hailstorm next to Amphitheater Lake. We crossed the outlet of the lake and went up Crystal Pass (class 2 on the east, class 3 on the west) and took the trail back to Sawtooth TH.
