Ascent Trip Report

Led Betsy and Tom (Sean's SIG) up the Tooth! Finally did the real Catwalk for pitch 4. Definitely felt easier this time.

Had to do everything in 14 hours due to Sienna's need for her anti-convulsant pills....including driving.

Left Seattle (SBP parking lot) at 6am. Started hiking from Alpental about 7:15am. Arrived at the Tooth notch

Had to squeeze in between Olympia Mounty groups (they had 4 rope teams!) We got ready just in case and when there was a lapse between team 2 and 3 I went for it. Good thing as we never would have made it otherwise.

Rapped from the tree down. All single 60 m rope raps. Betsy and Tom were stars and pulling rope and coiling. I would go first, setup the next rappel. Downclimbed to get back instead of rapelling pineapple pass crap gulley.

Got back home right at 7:50pm.
