GR409435 North-north fork of Upper Canyon creek – follow creek bed to trees and straight up NE ridge vs col/then N ridge

Hike 63A in the red book.  North – north fork of Upper Canyon Creek then NE ridge direct to peak versus going to col and then up N ridge to peak. Last 200 m had loose rock but ok.   Excellent scree/dirt run down the South side (63B) to join up with the trail to Bryant to make a loop. Dropped over 500 m in 20 – 25 min at casual pace.

About 15 km RT and 850 m – Not much trail, lots of creek bed rock and snow in the shade. casual 7 hrs with lots of breaks
