WOW, you actually read the entire page! Yep, my first mountain ever. Now, you get some inside info. I had to borrow gloves and a hat from some stranger on the descent. Here's the scary thing, it was Septmeber! I was so new to this 14er thing that I didn't think it would be nessecary for gloves and a hat in September. Man...how we learn from our mistakes. Thanks for the vote.
