Ascent Trip Report

Our patience on rainy Sunday/Monday paid off. Tuesday was a beautiful day to hike the big boys! Clear skies and nice temps along with a slight breeze made it a lovely hike. TONS of blueberries going up Hamlin Ridge - climbed strong up Baxter. A great hike across the knife edge - and an endless hike out Helon Taylor (feels WAY longer than 3.3 miles...). But overall, a really great day on the mountain. Incredible views all around and felt much more confident on the knife edge.
