Ascent Trip Report

Kiki and I started this hobby together and this was our first peak. A long hike and day overall, especially for the eve of our first wedding anniversary (oops!), but we both made it to the top. There was a bunch of traffic throughout the day and the views were beautiful from the top – a very clear day. The way down took a lot longer than expected.
