Ascent Trip Report

Ascended on day 3 of a 5 day trek with Dennis Poulon and's webmaster Greg Slayden. Adam Helman (COHP's webmaster) held down the fort at base camp.

On the 16 mile backpack out through the rain forest I slipped and sustained a non-displaced distal fibula ankle fracture. The walk out was unpleasant at best!
