    Bring it.

    “I brought my pack, you want to use it?” Craig says.

    “Sure, do you have weight to put in it?” I ask

    “Sure, how much?” he says.

    “70lbs shouldn’t be too bad” I say. . .


    But I did finish (up and back). I didn’t finish before 6:45am though.

    Trail Details-

    Total hike distance: about 1.32 miles taking elevation into account (each way).

    Overall elevation change: about 810ft

    Slope: A little over 20 degrees in two places, 15 degrees in about 4 other places.

    I think my time up was somewhere near 30 minutes, but Craig had the stopwatch. We had a 5 minute rest or so at the top before heading down (I took the pack off at the top). Once I got to the bottom, I realized that I didn’t have the pack on correctly and that almost all of the weight was on my shoulders (none on the belt).
