Ascent Trip Report

***Sierra Club Outing***
Led by Matt Hengst, Jack Kieffer

!!GLOW IN THE DARK DPS LIST FINISH!! Hengst finishes the list in style via the standard DPS Route. Except we started about 3:30 pm, watched a nice sunset on our way up, and then adorned with lots and lots of glow sticks, battery powered Xmas lights, and headlamps made it up to the cold and windy summit for a Champaign toast, photos ops, and lots of laughs. Then all 29 of us headed back down, lighting up that peak for miles around! Big fun!! Seriously cool trip.

Too many folks for me to get them all, but notable amongst the 29 were:
