Ascent Trip Report

a very strenuous hike, taking 14 hours, coming down from the 11,111 trail high point in the dark, causing us to lose the trail above Frog Lakes and wander around til we found it again. This is the reason I purchased a GPS (for future hikes). There was lot's of scree coming down from Camiaca, and needing to cross couple of snow fields remaining in gullies, after a long climb up a broken ridge from Summit Lake.
