Ascent Trip Report

Ascent was made to redeem myself for the unsuccessful summit attempt on 06-11-11. The trail was very steep most of the way and very muddy and wet from prior storms. There were eleven sets of wooden ladders on the Willey Range Trail in order to help negotiate the steepness of the terrain. That was my favorite part.
