Fine day out. Combined with Loader Peak. Very windy but sunny.
Easy to follow trail for awhile but some "paths" with cairns went off to the left of the granite ridge. We went left and we should have stayed on the ridge. After a bushwhack and scramble up a chute to the saddle we gained the summit. Was still worth it. There is a ridge line from the west that looked fun.
Easy outing good place to test out the sticky shoes
Great for a short trip - packed with views, interesting terrain, and options for descent or continuing along the ridge. I'll be back...
easy scrambling parts available on some slabby terrain. Not too difficult but it sure can get windy.
A good day, 2 hours up and 30 minutes along the ridge to the summit of Loader peak. Very windy but a fine day with good company.
