Hump day all day. Camels Hump starts off with a gradual incline hike that ends with magical 360 views. The hard part is getting up there. The last 1/4 mile to the summit from the famous Long Trial will make you question what you're doing with your life. At the top is the “Tundra Zone” that feels like being on another planet. The trek down is long and hard on the knees but a couple VT beers afterwards cured my aches and pains.
