Ascent Trip Report

First peak of the big day. Left the lean-to at Wolf Jaw Notch at 7:12 and were at the top of UWJ around 8:30. Things were looking great! Had good views of the AMR portion of the High Peaks, especially Dix. Spent 20 minutes on top, and then kept moving. Had a really good pace. Lots of rock to scramble over, but we did pretty well.
