Ascent Trip Report

Matt Hengst and Kristen Lindbergh led DPS trip. It took an hour for our big truck/camper to make it to the TH. Group of 10 made it to the summit in good time. Knife ridge lots of fun. Bomber foot and hand holds. Recommend gloves because the rock is rough. Nice weather, I never put on an extra layer even after it got dark (sunset 4:23) on the descent. Light wind. Great views, nice sunset. I took trekking poles and was glad I had them for the non-technical areas.
