Ascent Trip Report

Started from Bunny Flat at 2am, snow all the way from highway, but OK without crampons up to Horse Camp.
Many tour groups retreated before Red Bank. I estimate about 30 climbers made the summit.
I had to use my axe after Thumb Rock for safely traversing to the base of Misery Hill.
