Ascent Trip Report

Came back to Bandera for the sole purpose of making the true summit for the HC100 list, as I had only been to the West peak before, and in summer it looked not fun. Conditions were pretty awful, white out, snowing, windy enough to completely cover my outbound tracks along the ridge from the west peak to the true summit on the way back. The only significant or interesting thing encountered was stumbling upon two people having sex along the Ira Spring Trail on my way down. Very awkward.
