1st trip
Second attempt at this route after failing the goal attempting it from canyon of the waterfalls the week prior; can’t go that way when the water is flowing hard! Tip to start on the main massacre falls trail instead of the bushwhacking next to the trail that the official route suggests. Once on top of massacre falls, wave bye to all the people because you won’t see anyone again for a while. Steep off trail climb straight up that seemed to go on forever. Route finding got a bit tricky for us after this point, but we managed to link up to the Ridgeline trail and explore the crash site memorial before heading up to peak 5024. (Wouldn’t recommend going up there the way we did). Hung out at the peak for a bit and snacked while chatting with fellow hikers. Going back down flatiron in the afternoon was not ideal since it was packed. It felt amazing to be on flat ground again after finishing the descent. Wouldn’t do it again on a 4th date :M2C:
