Ascent Trip Report

this was the toughest hike i had ever completed to this point, and i wasn't conditioned for it.

i didn't have enough water, i took a chance drinking from the stream, until another group came by with a filter and offered to filter some for me. i would later start overstocking water and "pay it forward": i recall giving a 1L bottle to a family on mt. diablo who had underprepared for the summer heat.

after the hike i had a beer, and passed out in my tent. i'd toss and turn the whole night from the pain in my feet and legs.
