Ten Four Summit
|[ Sizes: Orig | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
Trees? This 4383 foot summit took us six hours to get here.
Prominence Peak bagger Ken Jones and SP member Eric Noel were as suprised about it taking this long as I was that five miles took that amount of time. The main purpose of posting this picture is to provide a look at the summit of this mountain. It is right behind them so no need to vote on this shot.
Why six hours? A locked gate, slide alder obstacle courses and slopes filled with Devil's Club, steep snow that required routefinding decisions. Going down was faster, it only took us 4 hours. 10 hours for ten miles and 3000 feet of elevation? Yup - It was a full day on what we thought would be a short day. Oh well....
