Ascent Trip Report

EN: "The next stop was Mt. Annie, another P2000 and thus another repeat for John . We contoured around to the West of the peak on a different road before giving up on that option and heading back to a different gate. We parked at a gate and walked the overgrown road. Occasional deadfall across the road slowed us a little. At one point John was assaulted by a rogue- albeit stationary- log. I thought it was just a scrape and he didn't seem outwardly bothered much. Later when I saw the cut I was surprised at how deep it was. Sliced all the way through the skin exposing the layers of fat and muscle beneath with a small but deep gouge into there. It was a nasty cut. Nevertheless the summit was made and another peak checked off. There is no reward of views to be found at the top. But we didn't notice that too much anyway as we were revisiting our pitching skills from days of yore. We chucked a bunch of rocks at a stump with only marginal success. Eventually, we headed back down, and went cross country for a bit for a more direct time saving path than that of the old road." --Eric Noel, July 28, 2006
