Ascent Trip Report

Perfect Climb. Near record temperatures, so we got up at 2:30 and made our way up to the trail head. Started before dawn with Jupiter and Venus blazzing. Made the summit in 4 1/2 hours, saw some rock slides and some steam coming out from the crater. Great trip back ... everything just went perfectly!!!
