A popular and a hard climb for basic students to get on. Luckily, being first in line on the mile-long wait list, I got bumped up to the regular list when another student dropped out at the last minute. The odds of climbing the peak outside of the club would’ve been slim. I couldn’t remember the last time when weather was decent on Labor Day weekend. But for us the weather turned out to be gorgeous during the entire trip.
Summit was initially capped in a persistent white layer when we got to the base. But miraculously the clouds started to slowly dissipate just as we began the last 800′ of scramble. Ultimately we were greeted with panoramic views on the summit.
Great trip with a solid climbing group, looking forward to next summer.
