PhotoDescr: It was on this trip with my older brother some years ago, to whom I had promised a summit camp replete with beer after an easy day's hike, that I learned first-hand the famous understatement of Mr. B.

I remember it being a little longer than six hours. Foolishly trying to keep up with his time guidelines, I rushed on ahead of my brother up slick fall neve, leaving him wondering how to use this axe contraption I had thrust in his hand. I do believe that was the last time he went hiking with me.
