Ascent Trip Report

11 am to 7:15pm , came down the ridge in the dark, 2 hour night hike. thought we were gonna have to camp it up there on the ridge. Then decided to slide down the ridge on our buts to get to what looked like a trail, and it was! :) no one missed work the next day.... success! I didn't see the triangle post, i still believe I hit the summit though after researching after again. That was epic AND crazy! not going back without a gps or someone know KNOWS this peak because I went up and down different ways. animal tracks everywhere, through bushes, scratches everywhere. BUT IT WAS FUN!
