Ascent Trip Report

The hike with a full pack up to the campground was steeper (and therefore tougher) than I expected. Fortunately the weather was cool- when hot, it must be unbearable. The trail up Rincon Peak is pretty good, though it gets pretty steep from about 7700'-8200'. Unfortunately, when we reached the summit, it was buried in clouds, and then it started to snow and sleet on us, so we never got to enjoy what should have been amazing views. I guess I'll have to return.
