Ascent Trip Report

This was my second attempt on this mountain and this time the weather was perfect. We selected a different tour company (Pilgrim Tours) for this trip and their local knowledge made all the difference. After a few acclimatization hikes and a bit of waiting around for the best weather window the entire group of 11 clients summited at around 10am.
