Ascent Trip Report

Glen Boulder to Boott Spur. Never been to Slide peak or the boulder. trail still fairly wet but no ice. got to treeline and the wind made staying balanced very hard. Boulder more impressive from the road. from Slide to Davis Path into a headwind from 40-50?mph. got to the ridge and crosswind knocked me off my feet twice. Top of Boott was maybe gusts of 70 or more. Walk down Boott Spur trail seemed a lot longer than the mileage indicated. Saw one other hiker and her dog between spur cut-off and last outlook. start at 0816 end at 1310
