      A subset of our crew from last year’s Gannett Peak ascent rejoined for Granite this year. We left the Mystic Lake trailhead early on a Sunday and hiked all the way up Froze-to-Death plateau and setup a basecamp. Monday morning we had the route to ourselves and summitted around 9:30 with blue skies. As we worked on the downclimbs and rappels we ran into one other group on their way up, watched the clouds start to build and nearly hit a goat with the rappel ropes. Back on the plateau we endured a 10 minute graupel storm then relaxed for the rest of the day. On Tuesday (Aug 1st) we hiked back to the end of the plateau then descended toward Avalanche Lake. After all the boulder hopping we headed toward the Snowball Lakes to camp. On our last day we passed Princess and Huckleberry Lakes and reached Mystic for the hike out. This was my 47th high point. Lots of pictures and a full report are at:
