Ascent Trip Report

This was the last peak of what ended up being an 11 hour day, made possible by the unseasonably cool and cloudy weather this Memorial Day.

Note that if you want to do Willson/Vasquez/Bills in one day I'd do Bills the reverse of how I did it - start with the off-park route, then descend via Bills Trail. (I also got off-route a bit on my descent because I got tempted by a fire road. Stick to the ridge as best you can if out of the park.)

Full stats in progress since I'm still figuring out how to segment this.
