Ascent Trip Report

Coming down from Mt. Truman and then back up towards Mt. Lincoln was again very quick. The distances were short and there wasn't much elevation gain. We paused once to take pictures but gained the summit shortly afterwards. Luiza made her goal of keeping ahead of the blue shirt guy. There, we paused for more pictures and he passed us for good.

After gazing at the scenery for a couple minutes, we resumed our ridge hike towards Little Haystack.
