Ascent Trip ReportW/ Evan This trip went from bad to worse. For some reason I was out of breath by the afternoon and decided the best course of action was to dump my overnight gear with my pack in a cache and come back for it later. I carried my essential gear in a few stuff sacks. My slow pace quickened somewhat. We eventually battled to Lafayette. It was so great to have made it, but then we looked west and saw storm clouds coming in. We made it below treeline before it hit but the lightning was right over our heads. Evan ended up spraining his ankle on a wet scramble down the OBP. We were hobbling out and did not make Lafayette Place until midnight. Probably my worse experience in the mountains.
