Ascent Trip ReportLeft my niece at 13,000ft when she started to struggle with the high altitude. She headed back to the tree line, while I rushed for the summit. On the way down a storm rolled in fast. The people left near the top felt the shock of the lightening stikes; I ran for the tree line and made it before the lightening became dangerous.
