Ascent Trip Report

Made it to the col between Algonquin and Boundary. Winds were knocking us off our feet, and it was raining horizontally. The trail was extremely muddy, almost impassable in one location. We tried to ascend Boundary and couldn't do it safely. Turned around, went back over Algonquin, then went home. Disappointing trip to say the least.
