Ascent Trip ReportBrett got sick two weeks before and was totally bummed that he had to reschedule Charleston. So minutes before this one started, I threw out my back somehow putting my sandwich in my backpack at the car! It was incredibly tight and killing me, but I didn't want to bail on Brett as he wasn't ready at the time to attempt it solo. The back relaxed a bit by the top of the ridge, and the rest was just a cruise up and down. No rain, but overcast and some thunder/lightning was scaring the heck out of Brett.
