Ascent Trip Report

First 14er and honestly a poor introduction to the Colorado 14ers that I am so apprehensive about. Really bland class 1/2 slog up an overtrafficked trail full of rando lame-os that aren't in shape and prepared and don't have any trail manners. The views from the top were fine. Massive looked massive. Ain't nothing like the Tetons though, tell you what. Gotta get them state HPs tho!
