Ascent Trip ReportEntered trail via rt 73 falls trail. It was an overcast day but we were ready for another summit. That turned out to be important due to the fact the Giant has a lot of steep sections. The kids climbed like monkeys as I was always in the back carrying everyone's lunch, snacks, extra clothes, extra water, etc... What are dad's for. LOL
Nice difficult climb but well worth it. We started out at 9am and got to the summit at 12:30pm. Lori, Brittany 10, and Wade 7 all made the summit.
We didn't realize Rocky Peak Ridge was only a couple miles away from the Summit of Giant. Woops! I'll just have to bag that one on another day.
