Trip Report

I was feeling quite ill the week of August 7th 2017. I'd probably been on one too many long day trips with Dr. Phil - or I was just allergic to work. Probably the latter. Of course, as the weekend approached and looked to be quite clear and warm, we started throwing around plans despite my current illness. After finally settling on a pretty fantastic trip that excited both of us, we were discouraged to find out that despite its relative obscurity, this particular peak was being visited by another party on the very same weekend. We decided we didn't care (even though we really did) and upheld our plans for a two day trip.
