 Stairs Mountain - 8/22/15

A nice day out to finally get to Stairs for my 43rd 52 With A View peak. The climb up to the Crawford spur is as grinding as ever, but then mellows out and is fairly flat or downhill all the way to Stairs Col. The climb to Stairs from the col is steep, rough and scrambly. The cliffs on Stairs offer a wide 180 degree view with Mt. Resolution looming nearby, and a dramatic view straight down to the lower stair and col. Looks like someone was using the tent site recently, what a place to wake up! I hung out here for a while and had lunch. I thought about doing a redo of Resolution on the way back, but didn't have the time (got a late start due to a breakfast date ;) ), so I'll come back another time. Didn't expect to see a ton of folks past Crawford, but ran into a group doing a traverse over to the Mt. Langdon Trail, and some people leaving Stairs as I was arriving.
