Ascent Trip Report

Winds topped 50mph; difficult to stand upright. Since clouds were so thick, left the trail near junction of Gulfside Tr and Air Line Tr to intercept ridge, then climbed ridge up and over humps of JQA. Needed compass to return to Air Line; surprised me since I've been in this area dozens of times. Winds and slippery rocks made for tiring day.
