We set out April 2nd needing to hike 15 miles to make the Gooch shelter. We made it 14 miles and just wildcat camped with our new friend Ian (pictured). The 14 miles were brutal up and down ascents and descents culminating in mount sassafras. Sassafras was a one mile almost vertical climb that just about killed us. I’m eating ibus like candy and everything still hurts!
