This was my first 14er- it was great, yet quite a shock! We stared at 2:30am, hit HORRIBLE winds around 5:30am but kept on trecking, hit the keyhole and freaked out! Yep- I LOVE hiking, but this was my 1st "scare" ...it was foggy the whole way along the narrows clear to the summit, couldn't see a thing below us... but it was worth it:-) After being on the summit for 45 minutes, it cleared up a bit for us so we could at least see out! Sunshine followed us the whole way back down. All in all it was a blast... heart pounding and all!
