    Its in the woods the whole way and very wooded from the top, you cannot see it, let alone judge the conditions from "looking down".

    I agree with this, but will add one more. Mt. Huron is one of the best peaks in this area. Its pretty easy, by far the easiest out of these four, but the setting and surrounding peaks make it a...

    That's interesting, but I'm not sure it matters. Regardless of whether the student made the decision or the leader, they never should have let him go down alone. Even if he just turned around and...

    Let me clarify my stance on this, so I don't come across as someone who is beating up on an older lady. I was a technical climber for about 12 years. I was and am of the opinion, that unless you lead...
