Ascent Trip Report

Such a beautiful hike. Very crowded going up icehouse canyon, but once you leave icehouse saddle, not too many people. Views are astounding. This hike really wore me out. It was hotter than I expected, and the elevation was getting to me more than expected. Did Bighorn peak as well. Definitely worth the extra 1.5 mile to get there and back from the Ontario trail.

My GPS is only from the top down, it wasn't turned on when I left.

Also, I had to park about 1/2 mile from the trailhead, because there were so many people.
