I love the upper part of this hike, the upper traverse past the waterfalls and then across the slabs to enter photogenic Gothic Basin.
I was up there once with a couple of other OSATers (Pete S and ?) when it was pouring rain, and we felt like salmon going upstream on the trail. Stood behind a rock at the lake out of the wind, and then hustled back down the creek.
A few years later I returned by myself to do the scramble on a beautiful day.
Fun climb, especially last bit to the summit. Awesome views! Climbed Del Campo as well.
A moderate sramble to some outstanding views. The nearby Castle Crags are also interesting scrambles to worthy summits.
One of the most scenic hikes!!! I went with my friend, Alainna. We only went to Gothic Basin & partway up Del Campo for killer views. Alainna got burned, so for all you fair skin people, slather on the sunblock!
Shared stunning views in a great weather window with Tobae McDuff and canine, Mila.
