Engineer and our plans
I kept thinking about the first known ascender H.G. Prout who was a topographic assistant with a U.S. Army Corps. He climbed this ridge in July of 1873 and described the climb as “the feelings of a solitary man toiling on hands and knees up this edge are not cheerful”. But we were cheerful.
The summit was spectacular. Nice snowy ridge with incredible views in all directions. Peaks coming in and out views as clouds were moving by. What a way to celebrate Easter, how different from Easters of my childhood.
