Comments
Comments: Completed my second Presidential Traverse and brought my buddy along to complete his first. We choose to stack the odds and ascend the Madison Gulf Trail to make our way to the ridge. This definitely helped to increase fatigue more than needed.

Beside this choice the trip was your standard Presidential Traverse. Nothing special.

Wind was whipping somewhere between 50 and 60 mph and made it hard to walk at times. Slowed us down and we had to watch our footing so that we would not get blown off the rocks.
