Ascent Trip Report

Mom and Dad took me on this one. Alan may have been along also. The weather turned foul and Mom stayed behind. An inch accumulation of hail dampened our shoes and made us cold, but we braved the weather to make the summit. Although the weather was bad, this may have been the trip that hooked me on mountain climbing.
