Ascent Trip Report

on the outbound journey i bagged phegley, and on return i bagged bills hill. this was a route i had planned ages ago, and the trip rose in priority because of the addition of bills hill to the nifty 90 list.

thanks to the recent rains the skys were clear, and the grass was green. the only thing missing were wildflowers: a few flowers visible, but nothing spectacular.
