Giant Hike On Giant And Rocky Peak

We hiked both Giant and Rocky Peak. That was a hard hike. We started at 7:30 from the Ridge trail. It was steep but pretty short. We got to the top of Giant at 10:00. We then decided to try Rocky Peak. We never even imagined that it would be as steep as it was. There were many steep, wet rock slabs and at one point I thought we would have to turn around. We got to the top of Rocky Peak at 1:00. We then headed back. We got to the car at 7:45 in the evening which was much later than we had imagined.

  1. Gurl you are awesome. This was such a hard hike and you did it! It was fun watching you charge up Giant, you barely took a break for the first 3 miles up!

    Rocky peak was a real challenge, that steep part down the backside of Giant was hard for both of us.

    My legs hurt for 4 days after that hike, but this will prepare us for the next one - which will be an even bigger challenge.

    Love you Gurl.
