Ascent Trip ReportDAY #35 ----- 140 PEOPLE -----
As usual Chris is very quick to leave in the AM, I caught up as we crested hump mtn (3m)- superb open T. At 19E we hitched a ride to Roadside restaurant, for a sunday buffet lunch - popular w the locals. Maria in a bit later, loaned her 5$ !!. We all pigged out. Made a few calls w chris's cell.
Arrived the brand new mountaineer shelter, apparently built in one day w the help of 140 PEOPLE carrying the lumber, a nice place w a good water source.
