Rockbound Lake lives up to its name. If you choose to hike around the lake you encounter massive house-sized boulders on the left side of the lake. The lake is a jewel surrounded by high cliffs that look impenetrable. I had heard there was a way up the cliffs and managed to find a narrow scree slope at the far end of the lake that I was able to ascend with difficulty, as it was steep and slippery, but it took me atop the first cliffs. By meandering further to the left, I was able to find a way up to the next level. After that, I was free to roam along the side of the high ridge overlooking the lake for expansive views. Due to running out of time and potential daylight I was unable to achieve the top of the ridge, but it was remote, solitary, satisfying wilderness experience. Attaining the high ridge made the hike much more memorable than simply arriving at the lake and staying there.
