Ascent Trip ReportI include my GPS data for completeness but recommend Eric Kassan's GPS track of 2016-01-30 as the one to follow. The route near Carney Springs is complicated by many unmarked trails and the most heavily used trail is not the one to follow (as I did before backtracking). The trail gets steep and rocky in some areas. The summit is reached above a fun class 3 scramble on slabs. Excellent views from the summit.
