Scramble: Our first trip in the mountains with Winston. The trail to Pedley Pass is great but very busy. Keeping Winston on leash was a challenge, he pulls a lot and that tired both of us. Beyond there, the number of hikers diminish. The basin and tarn on the way to Aeneas are stunning. Winston really let loose in the expansive terrain. From there the scramble is short and easy. Winston did well on the summit ridge (not exposed), he stayed on the trail at a settled pace. He seemed to have thoroughly enjoyed the outing, so did we, it is an awesome place to visit.
