Ascent Trip Report

This kicked ass. I loved it. The weather was perfect. I was well prepared for the hike. The trip down did me in. I have to admit it is pretty bizarre getting to the summit and having to wait in line with tourists to get my picture at the summit sign. My brother's boot fell apart. We had to duck tape it back together. And we made it!
