Ascent Trip ReportThis was our second peak on the 5th (Bierstadt was the first) so we got a later-than-usual start at about 11:30. Saw mountain goats on the summit. Got caught in the rain at about 13,500' on the decent and really pushed ourselves to get below tree line before it got to serious. Made it safely, but both Pete and I were exhausted.
