Ascent Trip ReportThis was a 50th anniversary commemorative hike of my first climb of Pilchuck in 1951 at the age of 4. I called my dad to see if he'd like to go back 50 years later, and he said yes, so at the age of 86 he and I returned for our second go at it. With trekking poles, which he had never used before, Dad was stable on the trail and due to the fact that he was still jogging at that time, he had no trouble whatsoever with the climb. What a great event it was.
