Likely the hardest of this seasons first Saturday group hikes... we did a range of the Picnics, topping out P4, then exploring an alternative descent down a nice bedrock slab between P3 and P4... eventually dumping into P3. Nice.
Once back down to the Dark Cliffs, we looped down and around to The Alamo Gap... and enjoyed that so nice final descent.
Started out with 20 hikers... early hour lost one to a severe illness attack. Eventually Mary doubled back to walk him out and monitor his condition. He was still at the trailhead 8 hours later. Not a great day for him.
Four hikers turned back early, enjoying the lower Picnics...
Balance of hikers worked their way up the more difficult scrambles in P4... having a challenging and fun day. Few issues with under hydrated hikers, but it worked out.
Yvonne nailed the climbs...!
Good day out!
