Ascent Trip Report

Nice drive up Lost Valley Rd to The PCT. The road was in good shape today with only a few rough spots, just fine when going slow and easy. It has been 3 months since Kim had back surgery and fusion and she did great today, a few spots like next to to boulder I had to make sure she went slow and make every foot placement perfect, no slips or falls, The bone in her back needs to grow and fill in the cage and around the rods and screws, so no mistakes with footwork. Doc says she should be able to push hard again in one year or so. This was a great day. The weather was good, views just great, and spending a morning on a summit with Kim is always great.
