Ascent Trip Report

#3 in the Ultra. At this point the water levels had gotten dangerously high and the Dam on the way to Haystack was breached. We found a log to shimmy over and made it to the summit in one piece. It was here that I made the decision to head back to my car. I was close to McKenzie's summit but I was too concerned with the rising water levels and didn't want to have cross them in the dark.
