Description

I was working in Estes Park, Colorado, and thought I might have time to go for a quick hike after work.  I had gained an hour of sunlight because of the time change from last week on Lily Mountain and Mount Olympus is literally right east of Lake Estes, so I thought I could make it.  Most of the route is just a steep off-trail hike with only a bit of scrambling near the summit block.  The views of Longs Peak and Lake Estes were really good.
