Ascent Trip Report

Date is an approximate best guess. We hiked up from our house and strung a clothesline between two trees and draped a tablecloth over it for a makeshift tent. This was our first ever night out in a "tent" and first ever "backpack" trip without staying in a mountain hut. Our camp was pretty much right on the summit. A classic American boyhood adventure for 12 and 10 year old brothers.
