We started San G at 6 AM, and it was a solid 38 degrees. To say we were cold was an understatement. And as someone with Raynaud’s disease, my body was not enjoying it. There were definitely some setbacks but thanks to my incredible friends and support system, we managed to push through. This was the longest, steepest gain I’ve ever done. It often felt like it was never ending, but the scenery was gorgeous. Once at the ridge to make the last stretch of steepness, dark clouds and fog started rolling in and we were worried a storm was coming in. Luckily, it didn’t, but the wind did pick up and it got even colder. We enjoyed the summit for a few minutes, but were far to cold to spend a long amount of time up there. At the end, our feet and legs were sore, our bodies dirty and sweaty, and our minds exhausted, but it was definitely worth the chance to say the we summited the highest peak in socal and completed our six pack of peaks challenge.
