This was an afternoon hike with my brother Ryan, while camping at Riggs Lake. It was slow going on the west side of the peak, as we climbed over endless fallen trees. We got to the top, where I was surprised to find a register in a plastic container. We looked around for a trail heading down the peak, but didn't see anything. We headed back down on a different route, and found the little drainage, which took us straight back to the campground. I ran into the campground host on the way back, and talked with him for awhile. He was a wealth of information and had a lot of stories about the area. An easy, yet enjoyable peak-bagging it was!
