Ascent Trip Report

I did this one with a group of guys from my church. It was unseasonably chilly this day. We had dense fog and pretty strong winds above 12,600 feet, so it was difficult to see where we were going. Fortunately, one of the guys had GPS, otherwise we may never have found the summit. I'll have to do this again, when it's not so foggy.
