This hike had it all: new faces, youthful participants, even a Canadian contingent.

We can’t forget to include our overachievers on Alta.

Of course there was a sunset more than worthy of the quick pace to the summit.

And in the end, we celebrated the TNAB tradition of camaraderie atop our climb.

The title sounds like an accurate description of the soaking TNAB took. Somehow though, they are still smiling.

How it started:

This week’s TNAB will be of unconventional variety; choose your adventure (CYA).  We’ll be heading for the Rocky Run TH and up toward Lake Lillian and points beyond starting a tad on the early side (5:30pm) to allot for the longer ventures.  Suggested TNAB targets for the night:

1. Alta Mountain (Challenging, 5:30pm start time advised)
2. Rampart Lakes (Moderate, with swimming options possible)
3. Rampart Ridge (Moderate, its the destination focus for later this month too)
4. Dungeon Peak (Challenging, was the original plan, but the climb is very brushy and nav difficult; not advised in current conditions)
5. Lake Lillian (Easiest, swimming and socializing)

For folks attempting Alta, a 5:30pm start is probably best.  The others can easily be done starting at 6:00pm.  Take pictures, have an adventure, and lets all meet at the Pour House afterward to exchange stories!
See you all on the trail! ~WxMan & The Torch Team
