Sufferfest Sunday I

Need to train for an upcoming event, so Deb and I decided on a 23 mile x 8200’ gain route. We’d call this day Sufferfest Sunday I

Left the truck at 5:00am and got back to the truck at 6:00pm. Up to tag both Nasty Rocks, then on to the Whetstone Jawbone loop.

Wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. The weather stayed dry for us too…

A great line up of old cascade peaks as well as the newer ones, Mt Washington, and the Three Sisters…
