Ascent Trip Report

Jayson Alexander and I winter hiked to the bluff. Snow on the road from Carvers Gap all the way up and back. Did tracking training with Jayson. Very cold but blue sky. We ate at Bobs Dairlyland before hand and that was not a good idea. I had a stomach ache the whole trip...wanted to throw up. We put out the bothy bag too. Very nice day!

We saw a guy carrying an axe. That was just weird.
