Ascent Trip Report

Another failure to add to the books. This time, it was the right call. Forecast called for a mostly sunny day. Instead, we were greeted with wind, heavy fog and cold. By the time we reached Forgotten Meadows, several of my fingers were numb. We couldn't see jack sh-t....The wind blew some fog away for a moment, long enough to see Forgotten and the direction we needed to go. But everything was wet, slippery. We did a fair bit of mud sliding and crawling over wet rocks before deciding that as crappy as an aborted attempt would be, it was the right call. Sure enough, as we got back to the car the storm clouds rolled in and we were greeted with crazy ass thunderstorms. This is one failure I can live with, and my toasty fingers are happier for it!
