Ascent Trip Report

***Sierra Club Outing***
led by Mat Kelliher, Mike Dillenback, Chris Spisak, Lilly Fukui

Started with 21 of us but two had to sign out early on due to ankle troubles. Of the remaining, one participant was extremely slow and wouldn't turn back, so we brought him all the way up to our exit road. Meanwhile, the rest of the group, led by Mike, Lilly, and Ted went on to get Mt McDill and Mint BM; they had all returned from the peaks and were waiting for us at the exit road. We sent our slow participant down with the rest of the group while Chris and I went to get the peaks. Both the main group and Chris & I actually missed the turnoff high up for the route we wanted; so we all ended up taking a dirt road east of where we wanted to be, and gaining a little bonus gain on our way down.

Mileage and gain for the whole loop trip: 10.0 miles with 2,300' gain

Group consisted of:
Tanya, Ted Lubeshkoff, Jackson Hsu, Dave Endres, John Purcell, Mike Dillenback, Lucinda Boswell, Lilly Fukui, Chris Spisak, Mary Jo Dungfelder, Peter Doggett, Ignacia Doggett, Sonia Arancibia, Jim Kidder, Shana Rapopert, Mary Varalyay, Gary Rice, Mari Saki, Gary Schenk, Nancy Jones
