Ascent Trip ReportHiked this with my ex-girlfriend. I wasn't well prepared as I hadn't eaten well the days before. It was a very difficult hike up, and got very steep near the summit. Had some tuna sandwiches at the top, I got sick (possibly bad tuna... who am I kidding, it was altitude sickness). The first mile and a half back down to treeline were miserable with my stomach sloshing something fierce with every step. Felt better once we hit treeline. All in all a great hike. Pretty unrelenting, but fantastic views from the summit.
I really regret not hiking more in CO before I moved out east.
