Ascent Trip Report

Solo hike, carried all my gear for three days. Got slammed by a thunderstorm while at the top. A bolt hit the peak and induced a charge in me. It felt like someone snapped me with the biggest rubber band ever. It stung, and I got the message, running down the talus back into the basins.
