Ascent Trip Report

This was the second time I summited this peak. I went with a friend who has never climbed before. It was the same route I took for my first climb to relive a childhood experience. The path again was well maintained and easy to follow. We stayed the night at Crag Camp, and then summited in the morning. The views were not so nice from the top as clouds were rolling in. Some ice and snow still remained higher up.
