Ascent Trip Report

It felt good to break my previous altitude record (Mt. Whitney) for the first time since 2013. I felt quite content above 15k, although granted I made a point to hike slow and drink far more water than I usually do. The scrable to the summit is fun. Left Teleferico at 9:20, topped out at 11:20, and made it back to the teleferico by 12:30.
