Ascent Trip Report

I began my way back up and started passing people that I had just passed. At least one woman noticed and said, "he's doing it again!". I didn't get slowed down by hardly anyone in this direction and made the top in good time. I'd have preferred to be under 2 hours round trip, but that's for next time. The trip down the Echo side went well, including my favorite part: gripping hand over hand down the hand rails heels first. With that, the Camelback-to-back was complete!
