Trip Report

After scrambling up Elk Mountain, three of us decided to continue on to Mount Thurston, the actual high point on the ridge. We were in a wee bit of a hurry since the rest of our group was heading back down Elk shortly, and we didn't want to keep them waiting in the parking lot too long. The beta I had indicated that Thurston was about a one hour hike from Elk. That meant 2 hours round trip - a bit too long for our tastes, so we aimed to cut that time down a bit.
