Ascent Trip ReportLate start (2:50 PM) the day before the time change meant we needed speed, and Collin had left his headlamp behind. Collin set a fast pace and I worked to keep up. The whole trip took just about three hours, including time at the top. We made it back just before sunset, and still had enough light to help get us back to the road. Ascent quality would have been lower at a slower pace. The oldest summit register went back to 1974!
