Ascent Trip Report

There’s a section of the road that’s pretty torn up from recent logging activity, seems worse than recent descriptions.

Because of the slow progress up the road I got on the trail later than expected but wanted to catch the sunset from the summit. I made it just in time for the last pink highlights of the clouds, but in my haste I tripped and jammed my right hand about a half mile from the summit. Tagged the top and walked out by headlamp. Thought there was a Kaiser facility in Spokane but apparently not an acute care facility. Waiting in the ER of one of their competitors!

Gorgeous evening despite the setback.

Update 4th metacarpal fracture, not the best way to build on gym climbing 5.10a clean yesterday!
