Ascent Trip Report

Found internet partner at last minute. Strong hiker. Good on snow - 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!
