Ascent – The Climb to the Top Starts NOW!

The soft launch for Ascent has now come and gone with 6 brave PAX starting off the group, no doubt this will grow as the word gets out there and more FNG’s and other PAX look to join this august group.  Thanks to Hops for getting this kick started and also to High Tide though while not in attendance (DR at the beach but posted anyway #strong) who is co-Q’ing with YHC long term.  Final T-Claps to Mall Cop for letting Ascent leverage the Rock facility and fantastic getting the group launched and COT together, thanks again brother #hugeinspirationtome

Great work by the PAX today, especially notable Pele and partner Hair Band on the field work were pushing it hard and Loki was flying on the baseball field.  Barqs told a story on the move the created the ambiance for an audible by Hops to do…what else, hopping work before hitting the Mary.  Thanks again to Hops for the kick start.

GO RUCK team heads out this Friday, go support the boys as they step off or come back in, I can attest to how awesome that is and YHC plans to be at least at one or the other if not both
