Ascent Trip Report

Last climb of the year with the family before the weather starts to get goofy. It had rained earlier in the week and the trail was one giant mud pit. The boys slipped and slid all over the place on the way up. It took alot longer getting up then we thought it would. The view however was well worth it. I was later told that the foliage isn't even that great this year. Well that's awesome, cause it looked amazing to me. On the way back down Mianda tripped and fell pretty hard. And again we slipped and slid our way down. We had hoped to climb Arab as well but the rest of the family was just to banged up. Well will be back next year for that. :)
