Ascent Trip Report

Drove up with the LSI Crew: Sean McIntyre, Ryan Long and Matt Castellana. Started out overcast but then turned to heavy rain. It was really fun to show those guys from Boston what I do for fun on weekends. The descent was really tough due to all of the rain. But we got down alive. Took much longer than expected.
