September 1, 1974
Left at 10:30 for Hunt’s Cove.
Then proceeded to Goat Peak Hilton.
Enroute Lee Hatch fell in a creek while crossing a log.
Started climb at 2:30 a.m. Sunday.
Arrived at Red Saddle at 6:30.
Were on summit at 8:30.
Arrived back at camp at 12:30.
Keep track of all those times if you can.
Walked out Monday.
The weather was perfect.
Had a full moon while climbing and never even had to use flashlite.
This was a very fine trip and those who didn’t make it missed a good one.
Brian & Lee & Wayne Hatch,
Richard W. Temple.
