Ascent Trip Report

I guess this was my first real solo go at a power-hike up/run down. Felt great going up, two breaks around the ladders, one for some grub and another to desperately change out some wet layers once the winds from the east hit me ??

Couldn’t have gotten a better day up there. Undercast ?? was off in the distance but still gorgeous to see! I’m never disappointed by either of these summits, Flume just has an awesome feel to it. Took a nice long break up top of Liberty to down some more kcals and H2Os. Hit a full jog/run the majority of the way down, with the exception of the ladders, I definitely wasn’t in the mood to eat it today ??

Great great great day. Sometimes words just aren’t enough.
