Ascent Trip Report

Third time is a charm. Nick and I both made the summit via the Keyhole route, overcoming our fears of the Narrows. Nick's eyes, when we reached the Narrows, were as large as I'm sure mine were on my first unsuccessful attempt in 1989. I found the Narrows much less daunting this time with my nerves a little more frayed on the Ledges part of the route. The Homestretch wasn't too difficult with cracks providing ample hand and foot holds.

It was a beautiful day on the large flat summit. I'd guess there were fifty people there.
