Ascent Trip Report

The plan was to head up to lunch counter, set up camp, hit the summit and come back down for sleep. On the way we realized it would be late going up so the snow would be soft, and it would he hard coming down, so we got to camp a 1pm and just hung out until the morning.

Are plan the next day was to beat everyone else to the summit so we left at 2am and were the only ones on the side of the mountain for the first hour. We got to the summit around 6am and watched the sunrise, however the snow was still frozen on the way down so we were not able to do the full 2000 ft glissade, but we were able to jump in for 1500 ft. Hike out was quick and uneventful. Back to car at noon.
