Ascent Trip Report

Cumulative elevation for all peaks on the hike is logged here, stats based on Gaia GPS.

A wonderful trek to do with Paul as he finished his OR P2K list, and Caleb only two more to go.

This was not really that bad of a bushwhack, which was both surprise and relief after reading prior trip reports. Staying on the crest definitely made our goings easier than they would have been had we been in the woods (blowdown?) to the NW. The rhodies were just starting to become a nuisance in a few places, so I'd guess they'll make this a bona fide bushwhack in the next few years.

A screw in the tire turned our long drive home into a longer drive home. :/
