Ascent Trip ReportThis is a continuation of my solo climb of cosgriff, south elbert, and mount elbert. I was very tired and I had a pounding headache but I was totaly wiling to go through the suffering to get that last mountain in that day. I started up the ridge and it took a very long time. I was very surprised but after a while it got very steep and I put my trekking poles away and rock climbed the very exposed boulders to the top off bull hill. I really do not understand why they call it bull HILL, it is deffinatly not a hill. Anyways I was pressed for time so I didnt even sign the summit register, I just took some pictures and started going down the ridge to try and get back to the black cloud trail. I was going down the ridge while I am exausted when I saw two deer which was very cool. It was very very difficult to get back down to the valley where the black cloud trail was but I couldnt find it. I looked all over for more than an hour and a half, crossing the river multiple times before I finaly found the trail. I was exausted but I continued down the trail and after 12 hours of nonstopped climbing I finaly reached the black cloud trailhead where my parents picked me up. That was an ablosutly amazing solo climb, it was completly epic and it was a crazy expirience.
