Andy I enjoyed this as an acclimation hike the day before we climbed Kings Peak. What an enjoyable hike! We sat out a short thunderstorm just below treeline. Then nice views from the summit!
The only issue was that we shredded a rental car tire on the road out. The last several miles are pretty rough! Thanks Sarah for making the suggestion on this mountain!
East Fork Blacks Fork Trailhead Date Climbed: Jul 28, 2008
I enjoyed this gentle peak on a lunch break during our out-hike from Red Castle Lake. I had spent several nights in the lovely wilderness wonderland backpacking the East Fork Blacks Fork Loop. I literally dashed up this mountain while my companions finished lunch. I bragged breathlessly for 10 minutes non-stop about the views from the summit, which I enjoyed alone.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
