Ascent Trip Report

Nasty wind and rain. I wore all my jackets and I was still cold and wet. I pressed on to the rim but had very poor visibility so, having never been there before, I couldn't tell if I was at the highest point or not. Given that I wouldn't have a way of knowing if I had reached the highest point, and given that I was quite cold, I stopped here.

I didn't see anyone going up on my descent, and on my way up, I asked everyone if they had made it. No one did so it seems I was the only one who made it this far this day.
