Ascent Trip ReportI climbed up this summit as one of many who climbed this peak during the last full weekend before the 100 per person climbing restrictions begin on May 15. Today was Mother's Day, and in honor of that day many of the climbers, both men and women, wore dresses or tutus. Many of the climbers, however, ascended to the crater rim but did not continue to advance to the highest point. I have pictures of me at the highest point recorded with my GPS.
