Ascent Trip Report

when i came through here in december of 2014 i wasn't peakbagging. at the time i climbed over eagle peak, and toro peak (but neglected to bushwhack the tiny bit to the actual high point), and simas peak, and when it came time to climb ollason i took the shortcut around the side, and didn't bother with the few extra feet to bag the summit. i was bummed when i was filling this all into peakbagger, and realised ollason was a CC peak and i'd have to go back for those few extra feet.

today was a sunny sunday, and the park was quite busy. but most folks don't go up the trails, and those who do don't seem to go even as far as eagle peak, content to turn back after they hit the first of the bumps along the way. other than one couple who reached the top of ollason a few minutes after me, i had it all to myself. i think they were relieved i didn't seem to want to sit at the picnic table, they seemed to be set on having a romantic picnic lunch at the summit. i left them be, happy to be headed downhill on the ridge.

ground was still a bit damp from recent rains, mud wasn't a big issue. everything was green. flowers will probably start showing up soon.

i went pretty slow today, still tired from last night's full moon hike.
