Ascent Trip Report

Going over Mt. Truman was mainly a slight rockhop away from the col. Luiza was keeping up quite quickly and as I was waiting for her, she told me she was trying to at least get to Mt. Lincoln ahead of the blue shirt guy. We breezed over the summit and went on towards the next peak.
