Ascent Trip Report

Regular hiking partner Sheila and I did this together. We were both surprised at how easy the way up was. Found ourselves actually questioning some of the mile markers. In particular, I think the last one said 1.2 to the top and it looked way longer. On the other hand...the way down seemed surprisingly punishing. This was our first longer adventure, so perhaps we were just out of shape.
