Ascent Trip Report

Not too bad of hike. Spencer and Will unkindly left me behind with his uncle and it took nearly 4hrs to get up. Spencer's Uncle is hard of hearing so I had to yell him words of encouragement to get him all the way up. He was also very religious and I was happy to find out I was added to his list of people to pray for.

Summited right before noon with a 7:00 am start. We took the southwest ridge route, which Brooke Mahoney told us to do although it is not the conventional route (not sure why...).
