Ascent Trip Report
Wanted to get my lungs adjusted to altitude and see some new county. The Uintas delivered. Amazing huge range. I was hoping to summit all 23 of the 13ers in Utah in one go, but my pace was too slow and didn't have enough food and battery power. Camped 3 nights: 1st Gunsight Pass, 2nd Bluebell Pass, 3rd Second Gemini - South Kings Peak saddle.
