Beautiful day. Easy enough initial 3 miles and then it gets steep. We added on South Boulder Peak since it was just an extra mile RT. Flies on both summits we’re insane. Like I’ve never been swarmed like that before. Freaky but they chilled out once you climb down.

Super foggy day = no view at the top. The remnants of fire damage from the western approach is apparent. Trail was easy to follow, but be sure to take the correct descent from the top.
