Camped at Three Elk Creek trailhead. The trail was a long forested approach to very nice alpine basin. Bushwhacked through some thick willows crossing over to the Southeast slope. Lots of wildlife including Elk, deer, mountain goats, and a bear. Very nice, relatively small summit with a great view of the surrounding Sawatch. Didn't see another hiker the entire day! I'd like to come back and follow the Class 5 ridge over to Harvard.
