A group of Forest Service Volunteers and friends joined to do this hike. Ages 60 to 81, the 8 person group wanted to begin on the hieroglyphic trail, move up past the balanced rock, then move up to 5057. As we cross the ridge just to the left of balanced rock, we moved up to the next summit. As we continued our climb sometimes finding cairns and much of the time without cairns, we continued our scramble upward. The day got quite warm as we progressed toward 5057, so took quite a few rest breaks. From 5057, we dropped down to the ridge line trail and moved back to the hieroglyphic saddle, where we headed down into the canyon. I did have a GPS and will try to attach the track to the posting.
