Ascent Trip Report

Up Mist Trail. Cables down. Used harness, prusik, sling, 2 locking biners, and rock shoes. Had the top to ourselves for about 20 minutes! Came down same way except JMT from above Vernal Falls to Bridge below Vernal falls, adding 1.5mi and 400', so Peter could go down mostly paved path rather than steps. No "mist" on Mist Trail since little water in falls/river. Perfect weather. Almost no one on trail.
