Ascent Trip Report

Awesome experience... but let me be honest. My buddy and I got in over our head for our first 14er. Route finding was difficult at times up top. Luckily we brought helmets, tons of loose scree. Brought microspikes but did not use them. Again awesome experience but I will be doing an easier one with other family members next time.
