Ascent Trip ReportI climbed Cascade Back in '08 with Roger and it was my first high peak. I've lived in this area my whole life and I'm sad to say it took 36 years before I climbed one. I was inspired by a show on PBS about the ADK 46er's and having two young children I decided to give it a try and if I liked it maybe they would become interested. It really was life changing. Had no idea what I was in for and ran out of water at the top. Luckily we met some people on the way down with extra water. Hit Porter while we were up there for #1 and #2 in my ADK 46 challenge.
