Ascent Trip Report

Hike needed by Tom for the 3500 Club. Hike was done with Sherrill after we did North Dome. Weather was great. Bushwhack went as they go. Rocks sliding out from under your feet, which means we fell. Arms cut by pine branches, we bled. And,of course,our favorite friend the black fly was ever present; nothing like having to cover your face with bug dope. AHHH, the smell of 100% Deet is intoxicating.
