Ascent Trip Report

Well, this was not fun.

Special thanks to Hockey Puck for his detailed trip report. I was the first visitor to the summit since his visit in May. My one fault was I did not remember to veer to the north to avoid the cliffs until I actually got to the cliffs. I found this whack especially difficult and it took whatever energy I had left that day. I was exhausted and relieved when I was finished. I did Scar Ridge two days earlier and I found that easier.

I'll also add that Lamms Trail is not very suitable for a sedan. I made it to the parking area, but I'm not sure I'd try that again.
