Little Hump Mt and Hump Mt

Hump Mt--it has several false summits
...VERY CHALLENGING!

One of the toughest days ever on several fronts!  Our first hiking of more than 15 miles, several TOUGH mountains specifically Hump Mt (kicked our butt), and last, as soon as we got to the campsite (Apple House) it rained hard.  We got drenched and all our stuff was wet--had to set-up the tent in a hurry. The objective for that night was to stay dry inside the tent.  Yesterday's climb (Roan Mt) was hard but today was harder.  We were trying to haul more miles so we can go home a day or two early--ACCOMPLISHED. We will stay at Vango/Abby Memorial Hostel tomorrow and will try to dry our stuff.  (08:35:01)  "One Step, One Mountain, One Day"
