Ascent Trip Report

Wanted to do this one earlier in the year, but being a heavy snow year, had to wait. Drove in to Deadfall Meadows TH. It's a bit shorter than the PCT route but has a few hundred feet more gain. The first 1/2 of the hike has about a 10% grade. The final 1/3 is about 20%. Unfortunately, there had been a lot of wildfires in the area, and visibility was limited to about 25 miles. The view of Shasta looming through the haze was surreal. This is one I'd be interested in repeating, using the PCT route.
