The intended itinerary for a bluebird day will be to take Pratt Lake trail and scramble to West Granite and then traverse the ridge to regular Granite and head down, a big loop with 8+ miles and 4k+ feet of gain. If snow conditions do not support or the weather is crummy, we will just go up and down West Granite.
