I headed up to Middle Peak to have some amateur radio fun. I’ve been up there twice before. The first time, I headed up from the south side, a huge mistake. My first mistake was not calling K6ARK who had been up there before, and the second was following a false trail. It turned into a massive sufferfest as I bushwhacked up to the summit. I got into the activation zone but stopped short of the summit since I still had some skin left. I setup, got my contacts and then got back down to the road. That trip was by far the most difficult bushwhack I’ve ever done.
My second trip was using the trail mentioned by K6ARK from the north side. That was a lot easier. It was mostly trail and definitely doable.
