Ascent Trip Report

I wasn't feeling well, but started the hike anyway. This was a mistake. The further I went, the worse I felt. I barfed and blew out the other end too. I finally stopped at 12,490 ft and my hiking partners decided to turn around also. I think it was something I ate the day before that caused my distress. Hunters on the road said they spotted 7 grizzlies on Francs the day before.
