Ascent Trip Report

On the summit we celebrated Eric Kassan's completion of Nevada's county prominence HP list with a bottle of champagne. There was a light breeze, then one sudden gust lifted my almost brand new Tilley hat straight up a hundred yards, then it slowly moved off toward the horizon. Weird.
