Ascent Trip Report

Drove over from Jefferson the day before. Somehow, the 6-hour drive seemed to take the whole day. Even though I got up at a reasonable hour, I did take a 2-hour nap. Anyway I got to the trailhead about 5:00 p.m. There were a whole bunch of people but I found a slightly more secluded camp spot slightly on a rough, very short road.

The next morning I was on the trail by 7:50 a.m. I made it to the top around 12:10 p.m. or so. At the top I met fellow peakbagger Kathy Rich. It was nice to talk to someone really into peaks to remind myself I'm not crazy for obsessive peakbagging. Went down at fairly good pace, determined to get Diamond Peak the next day. Made it back around 3:45 p.m., so just under 8 hours car to car.
