Ascent Trip ReportHiked in on Friday under cloudy skies and camped above Hannegan Pass, just below the horrible, eroded "gully." Woke up to sun, left camp at ~7am and summited around noon. Took a slower pace and all the precautions with Tristan, an aspiring mountaineer. Spent 3 hours on the summit - gorgeous, clear, warm, calm day. Descended back to camp for the night. Hiked out Sunday, tagging Hannegan Peak before heading down from the pass.
