Ascent Trip Report

This was my first overnight ever. Thanks Dad! I remember hiking with my dad and friend Mike. I was 15 he was 13. It was a beautiful day with little wind. I remember the trail was well maintained, and easy to follow. We made it to Crag camp where we spent the night sleeping on the floor. We woke up the next morning, and hiked to the summit. I believe there was at least 3 false summits. When we got to the top it was beautiful, clear, and one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. Hooked at that point!
