Ascent Trip Report

Rated this candidate HP pursuit activity as a "3" more becuase of the fortunate day that I chased them than I would have normally. Followed much of the Oeser report recommendations but chose a few side street approaches to get the most of the walking and view of the crazy ice storm. Ice covered all of the trees and the sun was coming up though them. It was beautiful.
