Trip Report

After a full day driving to and summiting Mount Harrison the Saturday previous, we slept in on Sunday before reluctantly rising and surveying the clouds that were now hanging over our little valley. Mount Folk hadn't looked very difficult the afternoon before, as we trudged slowly past it on our way up Mount Harrison, so we weren't too concerned about ascending it in the clouds or even rain if it came to that. Thunderstorms would be an issue, but we weren't expecting any of that sort of fun activity, so we ate a leisurely breakfast before setting off up the same route we'd just completed less than 10 hours previous. Good times. Dang peakbaggers...
