Ascent Trip ReportThis was a pretty rough hike. It started pretty well, if a little bit slow. The trudge up Boott Spur was fine, and the first overlook into Tuckerman's Ravine was fantastic, possibly my favorite view of the day. We stopped to have a snack at the summit of Boott Spur before heading on to Isolation. The ascent of Isolation was actually quite easy. We had lunch at the summit and were visited by 2 very friendly Grey Jays and snapped a couple pictures of them sitting on our hands.
We ascended back up Boott Spur to the Glen Boulder trail. Somehow I hurt my knee and descending was quite painful. Our descent was quite slow, so it took a long time to get down. Glen Boulder trail had some great views into the ravine. The lower section of the trail wasn't anything to write home about. It was nice to cross the stream and get to cool off a little bit, and we were all very happy to reach the car.
