hike to houndstooth

If you missed the spring hike to Houndstooth, here's another chance. This hike will somewhat follow the ridge to the base of the Houndstooth, with a short scramble through the secret sweet spot that leads to the top. Nothing scarey, but this is a VERY STEEP hike. There will be some bushwhacking, but this probably the least miserable route to that familiar granite outcrop between Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons. Depending on conditions, this hike will be a MOD+ to MSD-
