Ascent Trip Report

8/11/14 Started up before dawn. Ran into a family that was climbing the peak as a bucket list item. We worked our way over the first rock hump to the notch/snow traverse together and ended up climbing with them the rest of the day. I'm the new Cousin Brian to the Schaecher family from Idaho. We took photos with the flag up top not knowing it was a Jehovah's Witness one. Doh! Hiked back down together and then they gave me beer. Fun bunch to hook up with for the day.

6/20/15 Got to 12,450 with Sue. Normal route on the summit pinnacle was ice. Went up south ridge. Spicy mixed ice, rock and snow. Should be melted out soon though.
