A 4:30 am start had our group of 6 at the crawl by 8:30. Cool morning temps and a light breeze had most donning jackets while the fixed line across the crawl was being set. Smoke from Douglas and Camp Sherman fires occasionally obscured the views but most smoke drifted away by afternoon. Climbers listened to gypsy music (courtesy of the Bulgarian contingent of our climbing team) while waiting their turn to climb the chimney and get belayed out to the true summit. After a quick snack all were headed back down by 1:30. Most everything went fairly smooth for this my 1st lead of 3 Fingered Jack. Special thanks to my assistant, Rick Harris, for belaying, recent route beta, advice, and support.Members: Paskalev, Ivan, Glick, Ted, Harris, Danneille, Harris, Rick.
