Ascent Trip Report

Soloed the rock scramble on summit pyramid. Almost bailed in the morning in thick clouds and fog, but hike up 500 ft to pop out into clear air above low clouds in valleys, so went for it. All day in-between the low clouds and overcast high clouds, we could only see all the mtn tops to horizon.
