Ascent Trip Report

My records say the elevation was 13,455 ft.
Got to base of mountain and stayed one night. Discovered that our granola which we had brought from Bangkok ~3 weeks before had gone rancid. James got diarrhea at high camp.
Got started for the summit at about 5AM from high camp at about 11,000 ft.
Some rain on way out.
Ran down the mountain to get out in one day. Seemed like we were running down steps about 1 - 1.5 ft high all the way down through the jungle. This left us very sore the next day.
