Ascent Trip ReportBeautiful hike up from the Chisos Basin completed by an exposed scramble to the summit. Transiently felt like an irresponsible parent letting my 6 year old (plus other 3 children) climb up with me but he was fine - it was only me who felt very nervous. Very windy on top but fortunately plenty of satellite / radio equipment to hang on to while taking photos of the outstanding views.
