In my younger years I started bushwhacking going up starting on the northern western side. That was a mistake. Needless to say I was on the mountain a long time and never even made it close. Came home with a bunch of bush scratches as my trophy. Good thing this wasnt you.

Damn Gina! You picked a bitch of a hike for your first one. That hike up is exposed, steep and hot the whole way up until you get to the saddle before grunting up to the peak. Good on ya!
