Ascent Trip Report

This was a delightful hike with my friend Bob Bolton and the first of our marathon CA trip. We didn't get started until 2:45 so had to make a serious effort to get her done by dark but didn't make it, coming out at 7:09 in total darkness. The top few hundred vertical feet of the peak had snow about a foot or so deep but though it slowed us somewhat was only a minor irritant. I managed to leave my lights on at the TH so had a dead battery upon returning but fortunately a nice young man named Adam had jumper cables and got me going after about twenty minutes of delay.

4 hours, 34 minutes total, 7.8 miles, 2,834' vertical. Temperature about 55 at the start to about 40 at the finish.
