Ascent Trip Report

These mountains are bigger than the ones I'm used to in PA and Jersey, especially with a 40 lb plus backpack. There were decent to very good views all around Hogback. I was able to get some cool sunset pics while there - drawback was I hiked 1.5 hours or so in the dark to get to the shelter so I could have a fire, as it was in the 20's this night.
