Ascent Trip Report

Woke up at Uphill LT at 3:15, out by 3:45. Came across a couple of kids bivy'ing in the trail, one getting sick. Advised they head out before the heat and take their time. Agreed we would inform someone of their route as soon as possible. Continued up towards Lake Tear, on top of Skylight by 5:20 for a beautiful sunrise. One of my favorite peaks, absolutely stunning morning.
