This hike is a tough one because the elevation gain is high and it is a super thorny trail. You also have to deal with the heat.
I reached the mountain shoulder and turned back from there. The summit (2,050 m) had a lingering cloud on it and I didn’t feel like struggling to get to the top and get no views.
