Ascent Trip Report

State High Point 1 of 3 in 3 days. Flew to Las Vegas and drove down to Flagstaff. Drove up to the snowbowl parking area to check out the trail head for an early morning departure, then. Up early and hit the trail head at @ 6:30am. Switchback, switchback, switchback, ... Hit the saddle and met a guy from Chicago who wasn't feeling well and was heading back down. Headed up the ridge. At 12,000 feet, the elevation hit me. Paused for a bit, then continued up the final climb to find 2 locals resting at the top. Spent about 20 mins at the top taking pics and eating and then began descending. At 11,800 feet, the elevation hit me again - and this time I couldn't keep my dinner from the night before down. Felt much better and finished the descent without any other issues. On to Boundry (~9 hr drive)...
