Ascent Trip Report

Made this overnight trip with BCH group. Made a great ascent in about 2.5 hrs. There was snow on the summit. The temps probably fell to the 20's with a constant wind chill all night. I woke up just before sunrise to witness a beautiful sunrise. Had a great trip and looking forward to future trips with this group. There was one guy that carried his tent to the top but for whatever reason decided to sleep out in the open. When I got up the next morning I discovered that he left that night prior to midnight. He also left his tent behind. Not sure about that guy! Great cold weather trip.
