Of course it rained in the night, although it was just a sprinkle. We got up early this morning, because on the AT we embrace the suck, and our group of five were the first five on the mountain today. We did get some decent views on the climb, but eventually we were covered in clouds and mist. The climb was challenging and a little sketchy with everything nice and slick, but we made the five miles to the summit by 10am. We celebrated quickly and turned back down, mainly because it was cold. I think the way down took longer than the way up with all the wet rocks. We got a shuttle into Millinocket and got a hotel room, ate a bunch of food, got cleaned up, and are now relaxing in front of the TV with beer. What a luxury.
Congratulations! Thanks for sharing your amazing journey. Really proud of you both!
