Ascent Trip ReportTough climb. Ascended Challenger Point, then downclimbed and ascended Kit Carson vía the gully on the southwest face. Toughest 14er I’ve done so far, so much vertical gain. The trail is very steep and made of very loose dirt and scree. Got below the tree line just as a huge hailstorm hit.
