Red Mountain (Commonwealth Basin)

July 16, 2015. No snow on the route. We did not bring ice axes. The route from the trailhead to the junction at the base of Red Mountain is well cleared and brushed. There is generally a clear boot path to the summit, however, we left this and took a straighter route that enabled scrambling over solid slabs as well as loose rocks. The group communicated well regarding loose rocks and paid attention to fall lines. We arrived at the summit after 3.25 hours and returned to the trailhead after a total of roughly 7 hours.
