Ascent Trip Report

Start at the Atmospheric research center, quite a steep road right from the start. Started at 7:30, back at the Atmospheric research center by 15:20. Very nice walk, my first peak over 4000 feet. Could have done more, not completely tired. Leg not tired, knee and back were good, no problem. But I have to be careful with water. Did not add salt to my water and ended with some cramps in the arms on the second half of the trip.
