May 1: The water troubles continue; lack of drinking water and water falling from the sky. We woke up in the rain and hiked about six miles in the rain without water. When we got to the top of the mountain we were surprised by a two mile stretch of bouldering around the traverse. It was non stop crawling and climbing over huge boulders at the top of the ridge line. And then the driving rain and 20 mph winds set in. It took us four hours to navigate the boulders and limp into the shelter cold and wet to the bone. Easily the hardest and most miserable day so far. Pictured is a stretch of the ridge line bouldering. We are crossing our fingers for sun to dry out everything. Tough day, but happy trails.
