Ascent Trip ReportHot HUMID day... With no breeze on the main trail up.. I was sweating like a stuck pig... Obviously need more Trail miles under my feet before heading out west..
But it was a good day.. highest verticle hike yet.. did not have to stop on the way (though I did slow the pace a couple times to get a walking rest....).
Bigges issue.. gotta deal with this bum knee that acts up on the decents... (or resolve to always hike one-way and get a ride down...)
