Ascent Trip Report

Started about 7am on a scorching summer day, but the narrow gulch leading to high elevation kept me cool. I was surprised that the stream was running strong despite little winter snowpack which was almost all gone. I followed the route tips on the summitpost page, which were quite helpful. I made a substantial mistake once the canyon started to open up in that I got tired of fighting with the creek and the increasing vegetation and decided to try to make my up the E side of the canyon, hoping to find a rock ledge or something I could proceed S on. No such luck. I finally had to bushwhack my way through heavy brush/trees back to the gulch. Further up the going got much easier (although no less steep) as the boulderfields took over. THe wildflowers were beautiful.

From here it was on to S Thunder and peaks beyond!
