Ascent Trip Report

Harlan Stockman was nice enough to lead me on a hike today so I could get up to 100 new Peaks on my Summit list. It was a very tiring 10 mile, 4,200’ eg route from Lovell Canyon through rugged rocky washes, loose scree hills and carnivorous limestone ridges with scratchy brush and dead trees battering our bodies along the way. We bagged 1st Creek Overlook then went on to Mighty Wilson Peak, the highest Sandstone Peak in Red Rock, and to our surprise we ran into Mighty Barb Speckert on top! Bonus! We then battled back up to the ridge where at one point I was so entangled in some wicked shrubs I thought I’d never break free. With a quick break at the ridge we went on to Limestone Highpoint. I didn’t want to. I was on the ropes but I wanted that 100th Peak so I decided to deal with the suffering. This area felt remote to me so the whole way I had anxious thoughts.

I also earned the Ginsu Knife Club Cleaver! My 31 mile long run tomorrow is going to hurt.
