Ascent Trip Report

1-day climb on a hot, sunny day. Started seconds before midnight. Approach unremarkable in the dark, but enjoyed crescent moon, Venus, Mars, comet NEOWISE, and sunrise halfway between Meany Crest and Whitman Crest. Fryingpan and Whitman glaciers had nice, firm snow in the morning, becoming very slushy in afternoon. Just a few small crevasses were easily avoided. Final snow ramp was very steep and sloppy and in full sun everyone was suffering from the heat. Used a handline on the short, exposed traverse at the very top but it turned out to be not as bad as it looked.
