Ascent Trip ReportTen of us set out in the early hours of the morning on our ascent of California's highpoint, with nine of us reaching the summit. It was one cold miserable son-of-a-gun climb. Snow crept in on our descent and by the time we returned back to our cars that evening there was 4 inches of fresh powder covering them....adding to our already miserable state. Perhaps one of the most difficult climbs I have ever attempted, this peak would be one I would break up into two days if I were to climb her again.
