Ascent Trip Report

After dropping down the low point between Terrace Mt. and its lower middle peak, the path gained a bit of altitude, which gave a welcome rest to my knees. The pain was becoming worrying as the pricking feeling was now accompanied by a burning sensation. It made me increasingly unsure about my ability to return to the trailhead the next day. The sun was coming in and out of the clouds and, through the trees, I got a nice view of what I think is the Horn on Mt. Cabot that I took a picture of.

The actual middle Terrace summit was nothing but a bump on the ridge and I didn't linger before continuing towards north Terrace. The next col was a bit lower and it again gave me much pain in the knees.

A view of the Horn (I think) from Terrace Mt.'s ridge.
