Ascent Trip Report

1st peak of a long day, and certainly a kick in the pants right out of the starting gate. Trail is heavily eroded for much of the way, with a gravelly trough up to chest deep in many sections. Highlight was squeezing 6 people and 4 dogs into the Prius for the shuttle from Kinsman Notch, our destination for the day:)
