Ascent Trip Report

We drove in to the recently-cleared North Fork trailhead Sunday night, and started hiking in Monday. After reaching a nice campsite in a meadow about 8 miles in, shortly after the Pyramid Trail intersection, we dropped our gear and continue to Saska. At the start of the switchbacks before Saska pass we left the trail and angled up and right. We crossed a talus field, scrambled up some class 3 rock bands, then hiked up a loose scree gully to just below the summit. Here we scrambled up class 3 rock to gain the south ridge, then scrambled to the summit.

We camped out in the meadow that evening, then hiked out the next day, with a brief detour to check out Fern Lake.
