Our group of 5 from Washington left the trailhead at 5:30 am and hike through the forest with our headlamps. We ended up reaching the summit via the scree field left of the ridge. We descended down the rocky spine of the ridge. We figure it would have been a much easier approach. The view was incredible but would have been even better if there was no smoke from the fires. We were not even able to see the mountain from Medford. The weather was nice and warm. We were glad to be down before the heat of the day.
