Ascent Trip Report

First summit of Vesper with my mom, my brother Josh Lewis and his friend Kenny Griffin. We got a late start and camped at the lake sleeping under the stars which inspired me to make a painting. On summit day my mom kept poking at Pyrite crystals embedded in the large black blocks below the top with a knife filling a handkerchief with fool's gold. I remember lots of bees and feeling weak near the top. Gorgeous sunny day. Been addicted ever since.
