Ascent Trip Report

CMC Adventure Travel trip. We summitted Mount Ararat the previous Wednesday, this was our second national highpoint in a week. We cheated a bit by taking the Yastrebets Gondola up to the Musala Pathway. The weather looked a little iffy at times, with darkish clouds moving in and then moving out, but in the end we had no rain or storms. Tons and tons of hikers on the trail this day, a very popular mountain. I took the cable route on the way to the summit.
