Ascent Trip Report

Was hoping to use this trip to share some weekend outdoor activities with my wife Shauna and give our hammerhead/Siberian husky who is nearly 12 a chance for a last hurrah. Unfortunately about .3 mi into the climb we noticed both his back legs shaking badly so Shauna offered to take him back down while I continued. Trail is a pretty steady climb that gets progressively steeper but not crazy. Nice views from the top to north and east. Ran back down in 40 min.
