Ascent Trip ReportI doubt this counts as a climb, since we started at Summit Lake.
This was the last climb of the week of climbing that my parents gave to me for a graduation gift. By the time we finished the week, Dad and I both had our climbing legs. I enjoyed the week tremendously, and it confirmed me as a "peak bagger." Following this climb, however, I did not climb another mountain again until I had finished college and graduated from dental school.
