      Just got back from a great summit trip on King’s Peak. We came in via Henry’s Fork and camped in the Henry’s Fork basin, just inside the treeline close to Anderson Pass. That was on Friday. We started up on Sat morning at 6am, and summitted by 8:45am. The hike up Anderson Pass was steep, about 45 degrees, in some places a bit steeper. That took us about 45 min, then the rest of the time spent rock scrambling up to Kings. What a great hike. I would recommend taking the Anderson Pass route to those who want the shortest route possible. Just summit early to prevent getting rocks kicked down on you from above on your descent down the pass. The mosquitos were pretty bad. I brought in a mosquito net that I bought years ago and never thought I’d use. Well it was more valuable than tp on this trip!
      We lucked out on the weather. It was overcast when we got on top, but otherwise no adverse conditions.
      Awesome trip!
