 Great Views - Fun Scramble   

A full account of our trip on Mount Emma can be found at Yankee Boy Basin Peaks

We started hiking on the Governor Basin Road just above the creek crossing around 11,200. In the interest of cutting out road miles we busted up a steep hill and met back up with the road just above treeline. Our day covered 5.5 miles and 3200 vertical in 5 hours 45 minutes with 90 minutes of gorgeous summit time. The class 3 scrambling to the summit was solid and fun.
