Ascent Trip ReportI did not make it to a complete clearing prior to the eclipse. Also, I didn't have viewing googles. However, I used a pin hole in a piece of bark to view it on a tree. I made it to the shelter and tent platforms in time to race over the top to the lodge for a beer and some food. After that I spent some time on top enjoying the view before climbing down to finish setting up my tent. After I got setup, I climbed back up to the top for the sunset and it was well worth it. One of those times when I was wishing I had my 3 pound DSLR.
