Ascent Trip Report

After leaving Mt. Tecumseh's main peak, I made good speed back towards the trailhead. The way over the northwestern summit was quick, not lingering there at all. I passed over the summit without stopping, went up and down over the rough ridge again, stopped for a few moments at the clearing near the ridge's westernmost tip to admire the view, and then started going downhill on the main pitch.

I encountered no one, and it was a contemplative hike to the parking. Crossing the brooks was the last obstacle and when I reached the trailhead, I saw Luiza was already there, waiting in the car. She had already run out of things to do at the tent, had taken a short nap, and had decided to come wait here instead.

All in all, this short peakbag was dispatched easily and quickly.
