Discretion being the better part of not being derricked off the hill with heat stroke, my planned activation of lookout Mountain W7A/MN-144 today was aborted. I got a late start and it was already near 100 Deg F at the trailhead. it’s Short but pretty steep climb to the summit and I started to feel it pretty quick. being asthmatic, I need to pace myself. I decided to re-evaluate my situation every 100 vertical feet. Finally at 1750, about 1/2 way up, I had to call it a day. the summer bonus wasn’t worth the effort.
Apologies to those looking to work me on the summit, I’ll get up there some time.
I think my next activation will be Up north in the high country to get away from the Phoenix Heat.
