Ascent Trip Report

This was a trivial walk in the dark up to our third peak of the day, which we needed for the LVMC 50 Classics list. I hear it has a great view but it was pitch dark and we could see little but stars. There is a trail, but we lost it on the way up in the dark. We did have headlamps. I left my pack in the vehicle. We weren't even sure exactly what spot was the summit in the darkness, but figured it out after walking around the area.
