Write Up:
We began the ascent of Old Rag about 11 AM and were pleasantly surprised - no crowd, temperature in the low 80s and a light breeze. Perfect conditions. We boogied up the mountain with only a few breaks, enjoying some great views and some of the best rock scrambling on a hike anywhere around. Jesse tried to capture some of these moments only to realize he had no film in his camera. Just means he''s coming back to hike it again!

We got to the top and lunched for a while. The more energetic folk did a little bouldering while others just lounged. Then we began a rapid descent down the easy side of the mountain.

After that it was back to Warrenton for ice cream followed by dinner at Ruby Tuesday''s. For the record, KC "Top Shelf" Yi had a full rack of ribs. Nuff said!
