Within 7 hours we had gone from elevation zero near the coast to the top of the mountain. The elevation was taking its toll on me around the last 500 to 1000 feet. Dizziness, lightheaded, slight pulsating headache and a bit harder to hike. I felt much better after eating lunch and drinking plenty of water and Gatorade and just hanging out on top of the mountain. My body on the other hand worked very well and I didn't even get too sore from this hike. Robbie and I are both really stoked to have achieved this high mountain peak.Above: Taquitz Peak above 8,800 feet
