Ascent Trip Report

My feet were dead from the long ascent of Sahale the day before, but as we were already signed up for this club scramble, we went anyway. There were tons of people on the trail, and multiple parties ascending ahead of and after us. We started from the trailhead around 7:30 AM, reached the summit around 1:00 PM, and were back at the cars around 5:45. We brought ice axes, but ended up stashing them as there wasn't much snow on the ascent. Several of our members were happy to jump in the lake after we got down. Also, we learned a new Russian joke:

A bear is walking through the forest. He sees a burning car. He climbs in, and dies.

We didn't get it either.
