Ascent Trip Report

Persindex traverse in 15 hours with a friend of Josh Lewis. We tried to move quick through wet brush and partly sunny skies. I was surprised to find a faint trail most of the way and a few subtle flags at critical points that would have been hopeless without markers. A little dry and muddy for my taste- would have preferred more snow, especially closer to Index. I'm still in pain trying to walk almost 48 hours later. One and done but pretty nonetheless.
