Ascent Trip Report

Started from the Weeping Rocks trailhead with Joslyn at 0900. Overnight snow remained at higher elevations, and near the canyon rim / plateau, considerable ice and snow was present on the trail. Traction devices for our shoes would have been useful at the top. 8 mile round trip in just over 5 hours. Beautiful hike through Echo canyon and to Observation Point.
