Ascent Trip Report

and the train kept rolling from Armstrong to Gothics. Had nice views of the slides on the south side of Gothics. Still keeping a really good pace, it took us over an hour to go up. We were standing on the top around 10:30ish. The clouds cleared and it was absolutely beautiful. This was when I started thinking Haystack was a possibility. Being surrounded with a bunch of nutty freshmen made me consider it. Going down the cable route was a tad bit sketchy since I hadn't done anything like it before. But it was pretty cool. Would NOT want to do that in the rain. We ditched Paul at Ore Bed since he had to work the next NEW JERSEY!
