Ascent Trip Report

HOT HOT HOT!! Having already made plans to hike this peak I decided to ignore the 102 degree heat and give it a go. This would be a beautiful and fun trail if it didn't feel like you were on the surface of the sun! Being a recently transplanted New Englander I am not built for this! Still had a good time but needed to push to make it to peak. Got some great picks though and I would recommend for cooler days!
