Ascent Trip Report

Camped at trailhead and started climb at 5:30 AM. Was a strenuous climb. Chicken Out Ridge didn't seem that bad. The loose scree near the summit was more troublesome. One step forward and then slid two steps back. We had perfect weather. Met some neat people on the hike and had dinner with Dawn and Stephen in Mackay in the evening. HP #34.
