Ascent Trip Report

Guided trip with IMG on the DC route. Left Muir at 4:30am reached the crater rim at 10am, super strong winds during the night caused us to leave so late, windy all the way up, RMI guides just touched the crater rim and turned back, we went all the way. Winds in the crater were mild, the summit was getting 50+ sustained, made for a real alpine experience.
