Ascent Trip Report

Climbed the standard route up Challenger, traversed to Kit Carson, came back and nearybre-submitted Challenger, and then down. Long day of 12.5 hours or so. Giant pile of very steep scree garbage. Really scenic as well. Willow lake is amazing, with the steep cliff waterfall. Good views of the crestones up high.

Did in 1 day without camping. Getting to be in shape.
