Ascent of Cloudripper on 2008-07-19
|Date:||Saturday, July 19, 2008|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||13525 ft / 4122 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI found this peak much more difficult than I was expecting. In particular, going over the 13,200+ peak on the way to and on the way back was exhausting. Also, one has to be good at hiking on rocks to make this one, as once one leaves the trail, it's nothing but rocks. That said, the summit itself was incredible! The views were perhaps the best I've ever seen (and I've seen quite a few). Also, the difficulty made the sense of accomplishment that much more intense.
