Wow what an adventure!!! Nicolo mentioned that he was planning to attempt this one on Friday. Hmmm I work the night before but I could get by on a couple hours sleep and go, riiiiight!! We started up..then up...and up somemore. I was surpised that I felt pretty good going up. Lungs and legs felt good.
We made it to the "meadow" and could smell brass. We made it up to the cap location and started looking. After a few minutes of looking I decided to look in the most obvious spot...duhh! Wahooo there is that sweet cap!!
After a few minutes of rest and picture taking we decided to head back down...dark clouds on the move towards us!! Well it didnt take log before it got nasty. The wind picked up, the hail came down, the thunder rumbled and then the lightening sparked! I ain't gonna lie..I was getting nervous. Seeing lightening strike close and at lower elevations than you are kinda makes you want to get down quick. I think I have the worst karma when it comes to climbs. Almost every climb this year the weather has been crap!!
The bad storm passed and just stayed cloudy. We kept pressing on down the mountain. I think the 2 hours sleep was catching up to me. I probably should have took in some more fuel as well. I was getting tired but knew we were getting close. I pulled out the headlamp for a bit more light and Nicolo went down asap (no worries my man!). It was nice to get back to the Jeep. Got home, had a bite to ear, a hot shower and a few minutes later it was bedtime. Feeling great today though!!
This was a good haul but 100% worth it!! So many great views!! Glad I could do this one with my friend Nicolo!! Red90, your track log was awesome, thanks!! And as always OFTH, many thanks for the cap!
