Ascent Trip Report

What a gorgeous day to be up here! Wonderful fall day, crystal clear blue sky with just a slight breeze.
Gudi and I headed up the Caps Ridge Trail. She didn't quite trust herself over the open scrambles. She got past the first one but decided to wait at the second. (She could have easily made it.)
It is steep no doubt, but once passed those 2 really steep spots, its boulder hopping the rest of the way!
