Ascent Trip Report

Climbed Boundary Peak, and Mount Whitney, the same week. Stayed in Flagstaff on Saturday, and had breakfast at "The Place" at 5:00 AM and started climbing Sunday morning at 6:00 AM. Had a great hike through the forest. It had snowed the night before and the trail was dusted with snow. Reached the summit with Ed and Joe and spent about an hour on top. Seen a lot of other hikers. Just about every hiker had a dog along with them. Seemed strange to me. On the way down we looked for the old airplane that had crashed, but did not go far enough back to find it. We needed time to drive back to Vegas to fly home on Monday morning. It was a great way to end the week and a beautiful climb since the aspens were bright yellow. HP #5.
