Managed to squeeze in one last hike for the year. We started at 7:45 to cool temps, but that didn't last long. We passed a group of three other hikers before the real uphill started, they were taking things at a leisurely pace. Shade most of the way up, which was most welcome since there was no breeze. I felt like I really dragged uphill, but I made it without complaining too much. Nice snack break at the top, and the views were relatively decent. Downhill is basically just trying not fall on the way down. We passed the other hikers again, still making their way uphill. Fairly easy to follow the route for the most part, cairns are plentiful. Some brush in places, but nothing terrible. And I managed to tear a hole in my pants within the last 40' of the entire hike. My second hike of 2017 was Newman, on Jan 2nd with FOTG, so it was nice to finish out the year on the same peak. Thanks for driving, Chumley!
