After summiting Algonquin, I descended down to the col, still felt strong, and decided to climb Wright since it was right there. Good climb, no problems. After the groups of folks on the summit of Algonquin, the summit of Wright was deserted. I looked around and found the wreckage of the Air Force B-47 bomber that crashed in January 1962. After looking around, I found one other climber that had summited and asked him to take my pic. All in all a great day of climbing, bagging two High Peaks (I think that I was saying in the photo). Long descent on tired feet after 9 hours of climbing (2012-06-09). Photo by Keith Gros.
