Ascent Trip Report

This is a big hike the way we did it. It was the first time I ever hiked with Dennis Poulin who has become a great friend and a person that I've done over 200 hikes with (I'm writing this in 2015). I've put a lot of pics and info on my summitpost page of this one so please take the time to check it out, I do remember it was a hot day and the temps were nudging 90 when we hiked out. This isn't a peak I'd recommend doing in the heat but it worked for us because we started at first light.
