Trip Report

After spending a rather dismal and long day on Mounts Rowe and Festubert, I needed a few days off to rest the legs and read some good books I had for too long ignored on my e-reader. The weather started cooperating again on Thursday and plans started being thrown around. When the dust settled it was Eric Couldhart and I heading into the White Goat Wilderness via the Nigel and Cataract Passes to attempt a couple of remote and rarely ascended peaks.
