Ascent Trip Report

We left at 7 for the top. It was rainy and about 50 outside. We worked our way through the bottom of the trees and then up to the hill just nw of the top. At about 12 we reached the Col where you can watch Mt. Borah. I had been struggling with a cold. So I stopped there while my father in law and brother in law headed up to the top. They reached the top at about 130. It was very windy and with the wind chill I believe it was about 20 degrees. I hope to summit next year hopefully I won't be sick again
