Ascent Trip Report

Cross country route from Culp Valley, Pena Springs TH. Only scheduled 3 hours for the 4.6 mile route, but underestimated the difficulty of the terrain. I was only moving at 1 mph and needed to get back to pick up my son from school. Route is workable, but it would have taken me at least another 90 minutes to complete. Too many foxtails to be enjoyable, I'm still digging them out of my socks.
