Ascent Trip Report

A lovely rigorous hike with excellent views and trail. A few snow patches still and rocky and steep so poles recommended. It gets to you, I’ve done much worse and have felt better afterward. Didn’t help that I started (@6AM) on two hours sleep and felt real poorly from starting my period too. A bit crowded so allow extra time to share the trail. Overall reminds me of mt baldy (a comparison for the LA based hikers). If I lived closer I would return here frequently (hence the crowds!) Start early and turn around if thunderstorms lurk.
