Ascent Trip Report

Started the hike around 3:45am. Summited a little more than 7 hours later. Spent less than an hour at the top, then started the 4 hour, 15 minute hike back down to the trailhead. Very enjoyable hike, the views were incredible. The high elevation was not a problem for any of us, and none of us had to use those "bags". :)
