Ascent Trip ReportA John Strauch Hiking Society Sunday hike, and also more importantly a memorial hike for San Diego climber Adam Helman. This was a very nice tribute to Adam. I was impressed with the number of climbers from other parts of the US that came to honor him. It was obvious he had made a lot of friends who shared his love of high places. Was a special hike for me because in addition to honoring someone I had heard much about, I got to meet other climbers who I have communicated with via email or read trip reports of there climbs while planning my own. Was saddened that I had never met Adam, being a local San Diego climber. My list of others in the party is in-complete due to a limitation of the number of characters the field will accept.
