Ascent Trip ReportNice hike from the May Lake TH with Nate, Jack, Hillary, Kai, and Casey. 2 hours up to the top, with plenty of time to stop for a few pictures along the way. The trail was a little wet from the snow melt, but overall in great condition. Lots of carins and ducks on the way up, but there were so many possible routes - not hard to follow. The pace wasn't slow - I think we were all just tired from being on the constant GO and from our long Half Dome hike two days before. Beautiful views from the summit that only required a bit of class 3 scramble. We all stashed our poles within 50 feet of the summit, and duitifully picked up on the way down. Great views from the top - found all 3 survey markers (yeah!), and had a steady descent.
LOTS of misquotes - yikes! Otherwise, great hike!
On a special note - it was 3 years ago on this day that I survived a massive DVT/PE. Special day to celebrate on a special mountain. Here's to live - L'Chaim!
