Ascent Trip Report

Hasse visited and we made a road trip in the Rockies.
Camped at the Elbert Creek CG and made an acclimatizing trip up the valley. Eva had a bad toe and stayed in camp resting. Alpine start once again, along the normal trail and after all the false summits, we finally reached the real summit. A bit windy. Quick lunch behind the shelter on the top, and then back to the CG.

Elbert is our HP #20.
