Ascent Trip Report

We backpacked in with our dog "Hadrian the Great". On a very cold morning, we hiked in hoping for a Class 2 trail that Hadrian could climb. Unfortunately, the summit turned into Class 3 climbing and Hadrian could not go higher. We were forced to turned around. Hadrian was getting tired. Instead of hiking out, we ended up spending 12 hours in a two-person tent with Hadrian during a rainy night.
