Ascent Trip Report

Began the ascent at 8am and finished at the car in the parking lot at 5pm. Great skies, cool October day. Crowded, but not too much. Awesome, long ridge trail at the top from Mt. Lafayette to Mt. Lincoln. The descent by Falling Waters is quite steep and made for sore legs afterwards! Ascent: 3h, Descent: 6h with many photos and food breaks.
