Ascent Trip Report

C2 route made C4 by crawling to keep my ground during turbulent winds.
You could make a more direct descent from Eureka down to Horseshoe Lake (take note of the route while going from Rito Alto to Hermit) but it was way too windy for me to deal with route finding and my eyeballs wouldn’t stop crying from all the hellacious winds, which was my main reason for reascending Hermit to reach Hermit Pass Road.
I connected Hermit Pass Road back to Gibson Creek TH via the Rainbow Trail.
