Ascent Trip Report

We just kept motoring, occasionally checking with Rolex for time splits. We didn't log times, but it was certainly under an hour, right around 45 minutes, so we were on top around 9:15ish. The views from this day just kept getting better, and Armstrong was no exception. Had awesome views looking down the Johns Brook Valley. The cliffs on the northern face of Gothics were wicked impressive as they came out of the clouds.
