Climbing the Gar
We made it with all of our travellers in one hour twenty minutes. The runners that met us at the top took it in 22 minutes flat. There were a wide variety of members of our team that made the climb. Most of the troops were from the Logistical Task Force, formerly known as 141st Support Battalion of the Oregon Army National Guard. Men and women, young and middle aged, we made the climb together and navigated the knife edge of the peaks...the photos tell the story best. But it made for a great way to start a day...the official weekend of the force.
