Ascent Trip ReportBeautiful hike up from the Chisos Basin completed by an exposed scramble to the summit. Transiently felt like an irresponsible parent letting my 6 year old (plus other 3 children) climb up with us but he was fine - it was only me who felt very nervous. Bright and warm with stunning clarity of view in all directions but very windy on top but so grateful for the array of satellite / radio equipment to hang on to while taking photos.
