Only three of us showed. The 90% chance of rain had me waffling as to whether or not to cancel, I think my emails to the participants on this scared most into dropping out. The bushwhack was much worse than expected and ended up losing a lot of time there, dense woods, got turned around a little and ended up doing an extra 600 ft of up and down that was unnecessary. When we finally got to the open ridge, the early stuff had taken a toll on my leg and I ended up cramping, There was still 3000 of vertical ahead of us I knew I could not continue, had to turn around 3.2 miles in. But the rest of the route looked great from there. The weather was nice the whole time, mostly sunny. Until we got back to the car at noon, it started to rain on us then, so probably best we turned around.
