Ascent Trip Report

My 79-year-old dad started with us but turned around at around 12,000 feet. Soon after he left us we "enjoyed" a downpour of mixed rain and ice pellets, then continued to the summit.

Upon arrival we hurriedly went through the summit rituals

because another even nastier storm was approaching and we were afraid of being caught in the middle of it.

We hustled down the NE ridge

and happily the storm stayed south of us.
