First Ascent of Mt. James

Our friend Rockey named our pond: Pond, James Pond. We named this local Peak after the pond. This was the first known Ascent of Mt. James. After several days of reconoitering various routes we took the technically demanding West route, definitely not for under-equiped novices. After considerable effort Xena and I summited. We spent several breathless minutes admiring the stunning vistas before considering the rappel back down the shear sides to the safety of the low lands.

But then we just decided to walk off. Of course Xena jumped...
