Ascent Trip Report

Another one of those peaks that I had to reclimb. My NB Thru in 82 on the AT did not go over the highest point on the mountain, and my Colorado and Cascade friends don't credit a summit unless you STAND on the highest point. Getting close or putting a hand on it doesn't count. This was a toss up between several rocks. Just went ahead and stood on them all...probably looked like a meercat doing it, if anybody noticed. What is up with the goats?
