Myself and AC7MA set off to activate Hex Mountain (1534m, 6 Points + 3 winter bonus) this past Tuesday (20th March). Here is a short video I made at the summit:
It was a beautiful sunny day and we had the mountain to our selves. Snow conditions were great - we were on snow the entire hike but did not need snowshoes. It was about as perfect as an early spring activation could possibly be! Compared to our last activation (Sky Mountain) this was a walk in the park.
Total hike was a little over 7 miles and 2800’ elevation gain. It took 2.5 hrs to summit, 1.5 hrs to get back down.
Between us we made 26 contacts, all 20m CW. Thank you chasers!!
