Route Climbed: Loj to Van Hovenberg to Algonquin Trail Date Climbed: 11/08/2002
Arrgh! About 20 feet shy of the summit, beacuse the winds aloft were gusting to AT LEAST 50mph. we could barely stand up, and actually crawled up to a protective ledge and huddled next to a boulder to get some wind relief, that with the actuall summit just above us. Chancing the summit would've not been wise due to the very high wind gusts. A party just ahead of ours encountered the same conditions. Otherwise, a beautiful day, great sights and a challenging climb. See my pics!
