Ascent Trip Report

A scrambly (near the top) ascent from the saddle. Descending to the SW, I was surprised how volcanic the rocks/terrain were. It's basically a lava field! The cliffs above Little Slide Lake were impressive - and reminded me very much of the Gorge and Cascades.

Distance included with Graham Mtn
