Ascent Trip Report

Ill-prepared for this solo C2C attempt. I started only at 4:50am - I had desired to get going at 2:30am. Too much time spent outside in the sun in Desert Springs yesterday. After an hour of hiking I was really struggling and already starting to get hot. I felt like I was also carrying too much weight on my back (a lot of liquids). I knew I could probably carry on and complete the hike, but I could tell it would be really really difficult for me. I wasn't quite in the mood to push through it, so I made the call to turn around and get back to San Diego. I was home by 9:30am. I will return to do this, most likely not solo.
