Ascent Trip Report***Private Outing***
Great little trip up HPS Route 1 to Lilly Rock. Hot and humid with T storms building throughout ascent. Ascent via "The Wormhole". Lightening and Thunder started just as we summited. We got off the summit quick to avoid getting hit by lightening while up there. Nice little hail storm on descent that lasted about 5 minutes. Rain pretty much all the way down, but it was really refreshing because it broke the humidity.
