Ascent Trip ReportWeather was almost perfect. High was 70ish. Windy at some points, but ended up not needing my jacket that I didn't bring. Easily one of my favorite hikes and I was able to do pretty easily despite the strenuously long hike. I didn't get much sleep the night before. Awoke at 3:30 am after falling asleep at 11pm. For breakfast, I had 2 sandwiches(BEC), freshly ground espresso from Carabasset, and took ibuprofen before the hike which I think were all factors that helped make this hike seem easy for me until the last 2 mile stretch. Spent a total of about 2 hours at the tops of the 4 peaks.
