Ascent Trip Report

Watched planes doing runs on the wildfires on black crater from the summit. Saw 2 peregrines dancing around the summit. Awesome day. Had the summit to ourselves. Just passed one guide on the way up. 11h42 car to car. We moved fast when we were moving, but we also took some leisurely breaks, including 1h45 chilling on the summit. Perfect weather. Rapping down was a headache w ropes getting snagged on all the sharp rock
