Sufferfest Sunday II

Sufferfest Sunday II !!
Despite the forecasted 2-3 inches of rainfall in the coastal range, we (Karl & Deb) decided to stick with our original plans for Sufferfest Sunday II. We started hiking at 4:30am, and finished at 5:45pm (13.25 hours). This included a .75 hour break in between the two hikes. Hike one; Onion Peak…13-miles of logging road, and about 1.5 mile of a thrashy scramble climb to the summit. Then on to hike two; the Angora Grand Tour…a combination of logging road, abandoned logging road turned trail, a bit of cross country through young forest, and two ugly thrashy pinnacle climbs equaling about 9-miles.
Fortunately the forecasted rains never came….it sprinkled a few times, but never rained hard. We did get saturated though, thrashing through the wet vegetation.

After a 6.5 mile hike in the dark, we scramble up Onion Peak…with help from a rope left behind…
