Ascent Trip Report

Started at the McCullough Gulch Trail, continued down and added an extra three miles to the hike. Got very lost and eventually found the path. At 11,500 feet, altitude sickness started to kick in and caused myself to get a bad headache. I continued to 12,524 feet before turning around. A very close summit attempt, with an 8 mile hike stopping less than a mile out from the summit.
