Ascent Trip ReportMade it up during a whiteout with heavy freezing rain/fog accumulating 0.25" of ice on our trekking poles! Skinned up from the visitor's center Saturday in cold 34F rain, and made it to camp at 9000 ft. Built a huge snow wall to protect the tent from ferocious winds.
We summitted Saturday morning in 50mph winds, navigating by GPS in the whiteout. We then skied back to the visitor's center that afternoon and drove down to Yosemite for the next adventure. Looks like we were the last ones on the summit this winter season.
