Ascent Trip Report

Kate, Giacomo, Darren, Tyler, Ryan, (Dad) and I. Tyler had cut his wrist with an axe the night before, but the ranger/emt said he would be ok to hike unless he started bleeding again. Very humid and hot. Just as we hit timberline, it started to rain and hail. Tyler's dressing got wet and the wound opened again. I determined we had better turn around. Dad stayed behind at timberline on the Hunt Trail (AT), at the 3 mile boulder and at Katahdin Stream Falls. He will return with me later for another summit attempt.
