Route Climbed: Summit Ridge Date Climbed: July 6, 2002
My fiancé and I hiked from Summit Lake over Spalding to Evans. The clods obscured any view we might have had. I'm coming back in August to climb some other 14ers, and I'll likely use this route as a warm-up, acclimatization hike. Definitely do this mountain!!

Came over the summit ridge from Evans. Nice hike. Signed the summit register and then descended the other ridge to Summit Lake. For some reason had the whole mountain to myself until I got back to the car.
