With a goal of summiting Diamond Peak, we shaved a couple miles off the total distance by starting at Summit Lake. The first ~4 miles were easy, but things got challenging promptly after the uphill turn to the climbers trail. This turn is marked by two cairns and would not be hard to miss. Great weather, comfortable conditions both at Summit Lake and above treeline over Labor Day Weekend.
