Ascent Trip Report

After reaching the summit of Lee Peak (11,289), I went on to the summit of Charleston Peak. I enjoyed the North Loop trail much better than the South Loop because it had less challenging uphill on the return. That said, the final half mile up before the summit was pretty brutal.
