14.7 miles of hiking • 5000' elevation gain • 2 nights
I have to thank my climb team who fed me after I abandoned my pack for the last steep pitch to the summit. When I went to retrieve, I found that ravens had stolen ALL of my food. Zippers were undone, my headlamp was discarded, my bug spray chewed. They actually unclipped my bag to get into the inner contents. Amazing. Luckily my climb leader had an extra mountain house for our final night, and all my teammates asked if I needed a snack at every break upon descent. Such a fun experience, and my first rope team!
