|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|

Ascent Trip ReportStarted about 8650' @ 9:45 am Thu, 8/23. Reached Lake Como around 2 pm and set up camp. Hail chased us all into our tents around 6 pm. Stopped around 8 pm. 4:15 am start on 8/24. Reached summit in the fog around 8:45. Icy rocks made us go a bit slower (as if elevation didn't slow me down enough). Hung out until 9:30 or so. Back to camp by 11:30ish and back to car by 2 pm with enough rain for me to get my rain jacket and pack cover for our last 30 minutes. Great trip!
