Ascent Trip Report

Climbed with Bill Cram in 1989 or 1990. Climbed it on a Friday evening and found ourselves locked in the parking lot upon descent at sundown (park ranger thought we'd just parked my truck there for convenience and left a phone number to contact him). Since we didn't have cellphones back then and the nearest pay phone was miles away at a convenience store of unknown location, I came up with an alternative solution. Used a hacksaw to cut open the gate and drive out. Got a call from the cops at work on Monday and had to hire a welder to repair the gate for $50 to get them off my back. Would have cost $100 to get them to have it fixed.
