hike to the top of houndstooth

April presented its share of challenges, so let's try this again! This hike will somewhat follow the ridge to the base of the Houndstooth, with a short scramble through a chute that leads to the top. This is a VERY STEEP hike with plenty of bushwhacking, but is probably the least miserable route to that familiar granite outcrop between Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons.
