PhotoDescr: I know Jennifer through the BCMC, and was thrilled she was able to join me on a beautiful June day to climb Vantage Peak. Frankly, being a weekend warrior sucks when the weather doesn't cooperate, so when we received a break in the system I knew we had to climb something mid-week (read: I called in sick to work).
