Tried getting an early morning start, but it didn’t quite work that way. I had to repair / restitch my dirty girls. I was able to catch a ride back to the trail. Hit the trail at 10:30am. It was already getting pretty warm out. I had a solid climb out of the Beldon valley. I had nothing but pretty much 19 miles uphill. Wasn’t in much of a hurry, I was able to get in two naps throughout the day. Found a nice spot to post up, right below a peak.
