Ascent Trip Report

Saw snow starting around 9000 ft (maybe?). Got tired and uncoordinated around 10,000 ft (Maybe?) - was close to saddle where we stopped to eat lunch. Felt much better after lunch but was still very tired. Found it difficult to catch my breath after just walking a few steps. Trek was worth it - so happy to reach top. Ready to do it again!
