Ascent Trip Report

I climbed Bertha Peak via the Cougar Crest Trail. On the way back, I decided to head east bound on the PCT. It was warm and sunny when I left, but around noon thunderstorms rolled in dropping heavy rain and a little sleet. As with most sections of the PCT, this was a very pleasant trail to hike. However, this stretch has no views to speak of because it is descending the north side of the ridge.
