Ascent Trip Report

From my camp on north shore of Garnet Lake I took the un-maintained trail over the saddle of the ridge north of the lake and down towards Emerald lake where the trail intersects the JMT. Followed the JMT to a point just south of the peak and headed off trail up to the peak. From there wandered around on the north side of the peak trying to find a nice route on to the next high point but as I was searching it started to sprinkle. I did not want to be up on wet rocks so headed back down and back to camp via JMT and lake trail.
