Ascent Trip Report

KILLER MTN. DO NOT GO DOWN THE SIX HUSBANDS TRAIL!!!!!!!
VERY DANGEROUS!
i was about 8 miles into my hike, no cell phone, a map, and only one way down, CLASS 3 weather, thunder & lightning, rain this weather was awful i made it down safely but it was the longest most awful terrain i have ever been in on the trail. HIGH EXPERIANCED HIKERS ONLY!!! siriously i think this is harder then Washington. I give it a perfect TEN hardest hike i've ever down, prepare to rock climb this is awful. hard hard hike. good luck and wish you luck if you take it on.
