Ascent Trip Report

Started off on Sunday at 10:00a.m. from the Vivian trail, the first mile is a killer all switch back and straight up. Once i reaced the halfway camp, i headed to high creek camp. I arrived at 2:00p.m. I found a great site close to the small and slow stream, (I had to dig it down just to get a bottle into it). Having had dinner and finished reading the book i brought i bedded down. It was an early start i was awakend by 2 hikers headed to the summit at 4:00a.m. So i was up and on the trail by 5:00a.m. I reached the summit. it was a little windy. I then headed back down and arrived at camp around 8:30a.m. Had a quick bite to eat and packed up. I made it back to the trail head and my truck by 1:15 p.m. Great hike! and great weather....
