Ascent Trip Report

After climbing from Mt. Tecumseh's trailhead parking to the northwestern peak and reaching the low point at the col, I faced a last steeper pitch of rocky trail to the true peak of Mt. Tecumseh. It was a short trip and at 15:45, I was standing on the summit. There, I took a fruit bar out, ate quickly, took some pictures, and resumed my way down from where I came. 10 minutes later, I was at the col and would need to climb over the northwestern peak again.
