Ascent Trip Report

See Eric Noel's trip report. Quite the easy drive up. My issue was that I programmed a waypoint for a road junction slightly wrong and took some random turn in the area and wound up navigating very minor (sometimes grass) roads to get back on track. Though it was still really easy, the navigation error costing me less than 15 minutes.

It reminded me of my hike to the Placer cohp when a member of the party was convinced that the state line was WAY over there, due to that one mistaken digit.

I was in the general area working on the WA 13 (cohps with access issues). I got Adams, but didn't get Lilienthal. Now I lack only Lincoln and Pacific...

The acclaimed poet and novelist Sherman Alexie was born in Wellpinit, WA.
