Ascent Trip Report

Peak #2 for the day as I attempted the Ultra 6 challenge. Snowing at the summit, river crossing were getting dangerous as the water levels continued to raise. People were dropping out fast. I was seriously considering it myself at this point. Hike was rough going as the steep sections were made worse by the several inches of snow covering the rocks.
