Ascent Trip Report

Summited Tabeguache Peak via the West Ridge Route from Jennings Creek trailhead. With PB and AC. Was very windy on the ridge. There were several times when I had to fight for balance, especially on the way down. Perhaps that was because the wind was stronger at that time, or maybe it was because the wind direction was blowing more in my face. Summited before PB. AC turned around just below the false summit because she was worried about getting hurt in the wind. Based on the previous day's forecast, we had gusts up to 45 mph.
