2018-08-07 - Peak 5732 Abort   20 Photos   Aug 7, 2018
 
I began by following the return route from my Webster Mountain ascent five years ago, but with no recent evidence of cattle grazing it was one long thrash through a lot of thick brush. The super-high humidity was enough that over half my water was gone before going 1/4 the way so I decided to turn back.
