Ascent Trip Report

Climbed Mount Hale for the 2013 Falgs on the 48 memorial hike. Climbed via Zealand and Lend a Hand Trails. Decent vis Hale Brook Trail.

Driving up it looked like the day might turn out sunny, but alas. In the clouds for the vast majority of the day. Lend a Hand was very wet after several days of heavy rain. Had to ell where trail ended and brook began in many places.

Total ascent time was 3.5 hours, including a nice break at the Zealand Hut. Part of our crew carried hotdogs and a grill and we served the summit lunch...probably 20 people.

Decent was about 1.5 hours...muich drier.

Great event!!!
