Ascent Trip Report

DAY #2

It was a cool night , had my long johns on. Had a tough day, even though it was very short - out of gas at the end. Definetely not in shape and reason to stick to the plan. Right knee is sore, hopefully this is not serious. No views, in a tunnel all the way.

Tom, Peter, and Anne in at 18h00 hrs, Tom talked about leaving the T cause of his poor home made gear. Chris, nb'er, on way to hot springs, NC (271m), a 24 year old from ohio, on a limited budget, nice likeable young man who has a girlfriend working in Guatamala for a short period of time.
