Ascent Trip Report

This hike with my dad was long and had lots of snow. Most of our time above the treeline was spent traversing snowfields. During the ascent, I ran out of water, but we managed. I have a new appreciation for this aptly-titled peak. After arriving back in Snowmass, we went over to Glenwood Springs and enjoyed the springs, a most fitting end to a very tough day. I also got second-degree sunburns on my face, it was a drag.
