Ascent Trip Report

Brutal sunrise hike. Temps at TH -23F. Started at 0515, slow and steady pace. MSR's 2017. Lamp gave out. snowshoes wouldn't bind properly because straps were too frozen, but not a huge problem.. pack powder trail... could have used spikes. Temps dropped near low neg 30s toward junction. variable winds at 25mph. Made summit with time to spare for sunrise... neg 58 estimated windchill. Poles out.. no problem!
