Ascent Trip ReportThe next day, we left camp and headed for Pfeifferhorn. Getting to the summit was pretty easy, and fun. After going back down to camp, everybody headed home. On the way, down, Duane slipped, and fell. His sleeping bag came loose from his pack, and started rolling down the hill. Keith and I nearly died laughing, while watching Duane run down the hill and chase his sleeping bag. The rest of the hike down was easy, except when everybody got stuck behind a fat guy with only a disposable camera in one hand. We were in full packs, and stuck behind this guy. He finally moved out of the way on an uphill stretch, and we passed him. Pictures
