Ascent Trip Report

Ascended on day 3 of a 5 day trek with Dennis Poulon and peakbagger.com's webmaster Greg Slayden. Adam Helman (COHP's webmaster) held down the fort at base camp.

On the 16 mile backpack out through the rain forest I slipped and sustained a non-displaced distal fibula ankle fracture. The walk out was unpleasant at best!
