Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful day. Got a 2am start from Bunny flats. Used approach shoes on firm snow until Helen Lake where I switched to Mountaineering boots. Put crampon on about 500ft below Red Banks and ascended through the second chute in Red Banks. Cloud rolled in on Misery Hill but cleared near the top to a bluebird sky. Summit was a comfortable temp and allowed for approximately 1 hour on the top. Decent was firm until approximately 11,000 feet and glissadable below that. Car to Car in just under 10 hours.
