Ascent Trip Report

Standard route from the east. I did my second climb of this peak with my granddaughter, Amber. It was unfinished business for her, as she had been turned back by snow in May, 2003. It snowed on us above 13,000 ft., but we pressed on. Made the summit around noon and got back to the radio towers by about 3:30.
