Our guide wanted to summit Gannett in some way other than the common routes. This was certainly different. Summiting the peak was somewhat anti-climatic after the climb up through the canyon itself. But a very satisfying trip - we followed the route as described up then traversed the summit and came down via the Mammoth Glacier. The vista from Scott Lake is stunningly beautiful
