Ascent Trip ReportThis was a great trip for my sons and their good freind and myself! Part of crazy crew as i call it. The day was perfect for climbing and we had help from four wonderfull women when we got turned around abit at the split for Marcy. The boys were a great team today helpinging each other out with everything from shoes to food. These guys will be forever hikers after this trip. Just so you know it is very tight space up top. You will pass Wright and Irioxou doing this paek so enjoy them all. It is steep more so on the way down so if you are going down like my son Luke be sure to wear thick jeans because he went right through his. From start to finish this took us 10 hours.
