Ascent Trip Report

Ascended Mt. Elbert from the North Mount Elbert Trailhead. Car camped at the trailhead the night before. Once again (just like the time Paul and I climbed Longs and we car camped at the trailhead), I slept very little. It was very wet for our climb, but no all-out rain. But ended up being one of the few climbs in Colorado I've experienced with no view. The whole summit was engulfed in a cloud.
