Long day. Tried to run the ridge to Abiel. Big mistake.
Last day of good weather before the rain; perfect temps and a little wind. No one on the trail besides my party and a swarm of wasps (I was last in line and got four stings). The views from the top were amazing. My first time up, my buddies' umpteenth; now I know why they keep coming back.
did this in a few hours, but was in no rush. nice day to be out.
I did this when it was snowy, but got to remeet up with some friends of mine.
This was the first Mountaineers scramble that I was on that made the summit. I don't remember much except breathing heavy.
MAde it up before the winds picked up and the weather blew in.
Most everything was snow but I remember some thick little trees for a section.
Did this has sunset hike with a local group of people called TNAB.
