Ascent Trip Report

Really early flight out of Houston to be picked up by Christina with Rayleigh at the airport in the X5. We then headed out towards Boulder and parked right at the West Ridge Trail Head for free. I was really tired and getting used to being at over 7000 ft after having lived at sea level for the last few months.

Christina was recovering from a concussion and did not make the final summit scramble of about 15 ft.

Beautiful views at the top and a nice plaque identifying various well-known peaks in the Rocky Mountains. Great, short hike.
