Beautiful day, soft footing, no shiggy ... it made for an easy hike. So easy that a bunch of people bailed out at the last minute, and most of the group decided to do some extra miles to Mission Peak just to make it interesting. After that diss, I had to downgrade it to a Level 2.
Interestingly, the easiness did not prevent some people from getting lost. How do you lose Monument Peak on a clear day? And how do you lose the way to Mission Peak despite having gone there 1000 times? I guess this is an INCH hike after all.
No doubt Steve will come up with something appropriately challenging for next week.
