I left the Hexacuda Shelter at 6:50 AM with the intention of not going all the way to the hostel. The climb up Mount Cube was a 1,000 feet and not easy as there was a rocky ridge walk at the top.
I was standing on an angle when I shot this of the boulders.

As the day progressed, I came up on the road at route 25A. Another hiker said the omelette guy was there and cooking. The omelette guy is a retired gentleman who everyday at his expense cooks omelettes to order for hikers who stop. He said he goes through up to 25 dozen eggs each day. The guy is a legend. I had a three egg omelette with cheese, ham and a few other things thrown in. It was great. Then he broke out the angel food cake and dumped a bunch of near frozen fruit on it and whip cream. Then I had some pastries and finally a couple of bananas. I guess I was hungry.
With all that food in my stomach, I felt renewed and decided to go for the hostel. I made it there about 5:00 PM. There were a lot of other hikers there, but the hostel had plenty of bunks. Apparently, they built a new bunk house recently and it had many bunks (but no electricity yet). It looked comfortable enough, so I was set for the night.
