Aug. 23, 7:33 am:
early start for the actual climb. Having 2 trekking poles proved invaluable. I would liken it to being on 4-wheel drive. Since I can push against it with my arms, it balanced the load between legs and arms. On very technical sections however, it proved to be a liability. It was better to throw them in front and manage by holding on to rocks or roots.
