Route Climbed: Class 2 trail Date Climbed: July, 1992
I climbed Mt. Cardigan twice (both in summer), once when I was 13, and again at age 14. The first time we climbed it had rained the previous day and I got stuck on exposed rock near the summit, and unable to get an adequate foothold. Another kid got stuck, and was in danger of falling, and we had to all together pull him up. I can still remember the scared look on his face!
Cardigan was a tricky climb that day. It was the first time I ever got in trouble on a mountain and doubted my safety. You think that discouraged me from climbing? HELL NO!
Cardigan was a fun climb from my youth, and I'd like to do it again some day. I mostly remember the big rock on the trail with a big crack in the middle. I cut my hand badly the first time I had to climb up that rock. The trail was definitely class 2, and FUN!
