Ascent Trip Report

One of the worst hikes I've been on. The herd path to Tabletop was a river the entire way. I was completely soaked and it wasn't even raining. The mud was so thick in spots. I lost my shoe once and fell into knee deep pools of freezing cold water twice. Hardly any views at all from the summit. I'd only recommend this peak in the driest of conditions.
