Write-up by Peter
The highlight of the hike was taking the shortcut from Vista Point over to the Black Mountain Trail. George and Rudi had spent many weeks hacking away the brush, and it was like cruising along a superhighway. Ladies, if you need some bush trimmed, these guys can do the job.
Oh, and we met up with Will at the top. He had done a couple of INCH hikes in the past, but had been out of action for a while because, as he told us, "I injured myself on an INCH hike." We all got a hearty laugh out of that. INCH has no mercy.
