Ascent Trip Report

First aid climb. John Reeve, my history professor from seminary, met me at Smith for one day of climbing. We climbed to within a half-pitch of the summit, but didn't finish because we wanted to share a rappel setup with another party. Stepping out of the mouth is pretty amazing. Also, the aid pitch was harder than I expected.
