Mount of the Holy Cross

Mount of the Holy Cross Trip Report (#2839)

Did it in one day starting at the Half Moon Pass TH, on what I believe is the Northwest ridge - a standard route. It took us around 9 or 10 hours round trip and was not especially difficult, even the ~970 ft climb out. Absolutely incredible views of many mountain ranges, most notably the Elks, from the summit. Great climb, great day! Appreciated life and my fallen fellow NY'ers, both friends and stangers, that died three years earlier. Thought about them a lot on top.
