Ascent Trip Report

I hiked this one with my 12 year old son. It turned into quite the adventure as the concession operator would only allow so many people back in the boats to match how many were getting off. When the arriving boat passengers saw the huge crowd at the dock, nobody wanted to get off the boat so we were stuck there for the rest of the day. It nearly turned into a riot as there was no food, no water and the boat operators refused to send an empty boat to rescue us until the end of the day. Pretty much ruined the day for at least 70 or 80 people, maybe more. At least I got a lot of exploring in!
