Ascent Trip Report

Headed up the night before (7th of August) intending to bivy at the second treeline. As it was dark, I ended up going higher and set a bivy at 12,500'. A pre-dawn ascent with perfect conditions had me on top before 8:00 AM! Descended and passed 100+ people on their way up. This is a nice hike - if not for the altitude it would have been easy!!
