Ascent Trip Report

CPO Mess and Selectees had a team building event climbing Fuji. Chartered a bus that left Yokosuka at 0200 and we hit the trail at 0517. Made solid time up to crater rim at 0811 and was on the summit at 0836. Went back and tagged the second biggest summit, Hakusandake, which had a weather guy holding a wind instrument in a blistering windy whiteout. After went to the crater restaurants and had some ramen and coffee. After relaxing for a few hours waiting on the others, I realized via the Peakbagger app that they had more named hills around the crater rim trail, so I semi circled around and tagged them as well as Fuji's summit again
