Ascent Trip ReportSuccessful summit with Josh, Cory, Mike, Augustine, Tyler, Emily, Cody and myself. Headed to base camp on Saturday and were in the tents by 6:00 PM. Rose at midnight to begin the ascent. We had amazing views all the way up but unfortunately the summit was in clouds so we didn't have much a view at the top. Also unfortunate was the ice in the clouds froze over the lenses of most of our photos so almost none turned out. Augustine had minor altitude sickness on the way up and threw up once. Glad to have bagged Washington's highest! Will no doubt take a while for this to sink in.
