Ascent Trip Report

Started out with the intention of bagging Eagle also. Not to be this day. Assent up was very steep in one area. Tired us. The summit was viewless save for one small area. Turned around and came right back down. Was very hot and the hike up was tiring. we opted to go back rather then summit Eagle. Was my Dad's 84 B'day so home to a party.
