Ascent Trip ReportJeff & I set out under headlamps at 3:22 am. Stopped for a few minutes at trail camp, other than that it was a sustained effort the entire way. My summit time was 10:19 am (6:57).
Awesome sights, signed the registry, high fives, then started the return trip.
Arrived back at trailhead 3:32 pm.
What a day!
