Ascent Trip Report

Garden parking area via T1. This was a long day. First time to JBL. Under estimated difficulty of trail from Slant Rock to summit Little Haystack. Very rocky and slow going. Great views at both summits. Worth the trip. Missed T9 on way down and had to take T11 back to T1. T11 was very ruff. Traveling fast to beat the sunset. Got back to JBL at 1900. Fast track back to Garden parking in dark at 2028.
