Ascent Trip Report

First stop of the new year, then onto Peak 3339 ;)

I love the bouldering in this area. I got a new camera so I was checking out different angles and rock formations. However when I got to the last 50 feet I left the expensive new camera and backpack at the base of the scramble. Guess it is backward thinking during COVID and full hospitals that I was willing to injure myself but not the camera. Needless to say I didn't have my point-n-shoot camera (forgot it in the backpack) when I was at the top. I really wished someone else had been there to take a photo of me scrambling.

See trip report for Peak 3339 for all the stats.

I have to go back ...with someone else ;)
