Ascent Trip Report

Biggest mo-fo snake I ever saw at summit.

We came in from the northeast... but had to wade through heavy brush. After seeing that snake on the peak, we decided to follow the service road down to the highway, walk that to the town then walk the dirt road back to our car. A long, epic day.
