Ascent Trip Report

I found myself once again attempting to summitting the mountain that I had previously failed at just 6 months earlier freakeshly cold that day!! My climbing bud Andrew and I were coming across the presi range from Mount Madison. We were attempting the traverse when our climbing day was cut short with a mad dash to the lakes of clouds shelter because a massive thunderstorm rolled in, seemingly in seconds..we made it down to the shelter and spend the night and finished up the next morning!! great hike!
