We had 5 Pig Fence Virgins on this hike, including 3 INCH newbies! This is a tough hike, even for the most grizzled INCH veteran, especially on a day in the high 90s, let alone an INCH first-timer. Andres, who was training for a Spartan Race, just breezed through. Ronald and Camly struggled a bit, but both kept a great attitude throughout the hike, and I'm happy to report they also completed it in good spirits. Great way to get your first leaf!
