  • Bryant & Hemlock Peaks
  • Scrambling
  • Successful
  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • Excellent.

Always hard to find parking at the trail head, go early, car pool or be prepared to walk.  The trail up to Hemlock is great, take an immediate right upon reaching the pass.  Following the trail until we got to the "wall" - on the way up we went straight up and to the left following flags, don't do that.  You want to go right (cairns should suggest go right from the 4,800 knob) and stay left of a clear drainage (or stream early in the year) to head up.  Once we reached the basin followed a foot path that lead to the SW rib and followed bits of trails to the top.  Very hazy today - but a great, fun scramble.  Took us 6 hours round trip including 45 mins at the top.
