Ascent Trip Report

Really nice day. Got an early start with Whatever, at least we thought so. Started out entangled in a guided group where we couldn't get by until one of the guides said something to let us by. It was just funny being in a group of people that were all talking to each other. Anyway, pretty steep climb but easy "terrain" (sidewalk mostly). River walk, then switchbacks, then canyon walk, then Walter's wiggles, then the chains. Pretty crowded but patience wins out up and down. Pretty good views mostly of the canyon below - offers a different perspective on the whole thing. But we were not really high enough to see beyond as there were higher mountains in the area. There are porty pottys at the "scouts lookout" just before the chain climbing but are to be used in "emergency" situations only. Oh yeah, gps track is full of errors because it was in canyons.
