Ascent Trip Report

This was my first significant peak, and while I could handle the 5 mile hike, the elevation was another story. I remember getting to a point where I was quite dizzy and nauseous, and I decided to descend. A little while later, I was standing at the summit - evidently the direction I thought was down was really up! A good rest at the summit revived me. What a view!
