Session 1, 20 degrees cooler than Phx
I stopped on the drive home to climb up the Derrick trail by Tonto Creek. 3 miles and 950 vf, much of it cobbled. On the whole I wasn’t a fan, even if the view of the Rim and the manzanitas was beautiful.
Reaching the Highline trail was glorious, but another 300 feet up in the next mile did me in. I started the climb at 95 degrees, and it just ground me down. I didn’t feel the burden consciously, but had absolutely nothing left for any pitch once I reached the edge of the Rim an hour later.
Right here I declared nada mas after cold sweating the second time. Some days the mountain beats you.
sat down to enjoy my trail taco bowl. I have leveled up the trail burrito
