Ascent Trip Report

I Did plan on hiking the carters today but the weather did not look good with a high of 100... chances of thunder and lightning, i thought i would get up early and try this one... last one in the region. i woke up at 4:15 and left the house. by 9:30 i was summiting it was a great feeling... the weather starter getting hot early. i hiked up the double black diamond trail to the ski summit and walked over to the true summit, looks like a sub peak off to the right. this was a great hike didn't take long, although i would recommend the trail rather than the ski trail... probably much easier. i just wanted to do it direct. but i think its a lot easier from what I've heard by the trail. the top has incredible view especially of the Osceola i think this would be a great hike for almost anyone... i wouldn't recommend this to a beginner but i would probably say this was probably one of the easier 4 K's Ive done. so i think its in the easy-mid hiker range for difficulty i would give it a 4 for hardness. but it wasn't bad good trail from the top to top. no complaints rather than the weather.
