Ascent Trip Report

Booted up from highest ski lift in my new AT boots. Feet were absolutely killing me in the footwear and I had to stop many times to uncramp my feet. Meanwhile, Shashi was truding through the talus and ice in his denim jeans and Van shoes. A ski patroller had taken a look at him and warned against heading up with that clothing, remarking that they had just rescued a individual in jeans a few days prior. Not heeding the warning, we continued up and made the top in some extremely fierce winds that almost knocked us off our feet as we hit the crest. A short summit stay was followed by an uneventful descent back down to comparative warmth of the ski resort.
