Ascent Trip ReportTrained very hard to do this hike but lost out to Mother Nature.
We didn’t Summit. We turned around at the 12,000 foot mark 7.5 miles up at Trail Camp. Winds were 50mph there and freezing cold. Everyone coming down from the switchbacks or Trail Crest at 13,000 feet said the wind is 80mph up there and blowing from all angles. Very few people passed Trail Crest today.
