Ascent Trip Report

My 5th night ascent. Started hiking about 5:30-5:45, summited just after sunrise. Our only headlamp's batteries died about 15 minutes into the hike, so we hiked by moonlight until the sun started poking up. We cooked some ramen just below the top and out of the wind, with a great view to the south east. Got down in about 40 min. It was pretty cold, but quite clear, average wind. Great views, and a good time.
