Ascent Trip Report

Perfect Memorial Day for a hike in the high peaks. A couple of years back I hiked Giant but was unable to get over to Rocky Peak Ridge due to a late start and inexperienced companions. Today I went alone and was able to finally get over to RPR. That 1.2 miles over and then the same back was really muddy with considerable erosion. Views from RPR were amazing with nothing but blue skies. Same for Giant. Tried out some of the new gear like my jetboil flash. Thing worked like a charm. 6th high peak hiked for me, 40 to go. Met a fellow by the the name of Dave who was a 46er and I am hoping to hook up with him some more so I have someone to guide me on some of the harder to reach peaks.
