Ascent Trip Report

Tim Newman and I did this peak to begin to acclimatize us, since we planning on doing Mt. Shasta a couple days later. The trail is pretty good, and if one is in shape and can handle the altitude (and/or take it slowly), it should not pose any challenges. The view from the summit is incredible.
