Ascent Trip ReportAfter turning back from an attempt on Kings Peak on Wednesday, my mom and I decided to go up a couple of eleveners on the easier end of the spectrum. We'd taken the whole week off to hike, and this sounded like the perfect way to wrap it up.
A year ago, the hike to Cecret Lake was daunting for me; now it was just a pleasant walk. We got a bit turned around after the buttress, but followed the road to the saddle and then the trail to the top. Standing atop Sugarloaf made me more interested in Devil's Castle than I've ever been before.
This was my mom's first elevener (and my third).
