Ascent Trip Report

This time I summited Spectre and then revisited Aqua. You need to pay attention to your GPS when in this country. There are so many rocky outcroppings everywhere that using the topo is challenging. On my first attempt last year I did not use my GPS and ascended Aqua thinking I was ascending Spectre. Once on top you immediately get a view of Spectre and know you goofed. Both are worthy peaks though. I have really enjoyed all three of my trips into the coxcombs.
