Ascent Trip Report

What started as a little day hike turned into an attempt to summit. I was unprepared for this. Weather was in the 90s and I did not have enough water. By the time I got about 300 shy of the peak it was clear going further would be dangerous and foolish. No phone, no water, I hadn't told anyone where I was going. Pretty much did everything wrong. It was still beautiful and relaxing though.
