Ascent Trip Report

Awesome hike. Quite tiring packing in full packs for about 3,000 foot gain in elevation until we made it Lake Como. Left early the next morning, but as always, being from Texas makes higher altitude hikes a bit challenging. Thank God for the mental stregnth ! Made it up to the upper part of the saddle. What a view...became a bit dizzy for a minute just looking over to the other side. Started final ascent when some very black stormy clouds started coming our way very quickly. Made the choice to call the hike and go for it again next summer.
