Ascent Trip Report

Entered 10/19/2019.

I led a UMOC group up Norwottuck for my first mock lead as a front country leader. It ended up being mostly a night hike but still enjoyable. I accidentally led the group to an unofficial trail causing me to fail my mock lead. I was disappointed. Everything else went well. I understand, though. A navigation mistake can be a serious error, and it's much better I learn now and try again than repeat it when it matters on a more serious trip, front or backcountry. I'll stick with the same leader next time. He was understanding and helpful in understanding what went well and what could be improved upon.
