Trip Report

After an excellent day out on Ramp Peak a few weeks previous, I was thinking it would be a good idea to take advantage of the excellent snow pack of spring 2012 and go after Ramp's neighbor to the north, Quartzite Peak before too much spring warmth melted all that delicious snow pack away! On this particular day I was joined by Raff and Ian Hunt. It was good to be going on a trip with the crazy Pol again and Ian and I haven't done a trip together in around 4 years so that was cool too.
