Ascent Trip ReportI'm a backpacker and this was my first mountain climb. Though we didn't make the summit it was still an exciting adventure. This was from my blog: "I’ve always felt a bit jealous of mountain climbers I met on the trail, with their rakish attitude and dangerous looking equipment dangling from their backpacks. That would soon change because I was part of a climbing team headed up glacier-covered Mt. Olympus!...
