Ascent Trip Report

For my 3rd 14er this week we decided on Mt. Yale. We decided to go very late at about 1 oclock in the afternoon. The weather was questionable and there was a high likleyhood of our summit attemped being thwarted. During the ascent 3 of us decided to go down, one because of altitude sickness and the other 2 to assist and because of the weather. Once the remaining 3 of us broke tree line and began hiking towards the summit the weather started to clear and the dark menacing clouds began to retreat. We chuged on towards the summit but got off route onto class 3 terrain on the summit ridge. We descended back and found the trail again to reach the top. It was dark by the time we got back to the car.
