Ascent Trip Report

Found internet partner at last minute. A strong hiker who was good on snow but left some of my rock gear on the mountain. Hiked in 17.5 miles in one day with 53 pound pack. 12 hour summit day. Screwed up on rock - didn't climb steep snow first. Climbed from col - crap rock. Onsighted all. Summit day out to Elk Lake - then finished the next day and made Seattle redeye flight.
Very nice overall mountaineering experience - had it all. Great weather!
