Ski crampons would have been nice on the slick and ice up-track, but I managed. I was so into the climb I never stopped to take photos on the way up!
Horton and Cayleb came along too, and I'm ashamed to admit that in my excitement and internal demand to burn I took off as if they weren't even there and climbed at 2500' in about 1:33. Charlie and I got to hang out on the summit, take photos, and then have lunch after Horton, India and Cayleb arrived.
We took a more leisurely, and fun, ski descent back down to the cars. I may have found my new solo dawn patrol when the avie conditions are low! Thanks to Horton and Cayleb for coming with - sorry I was such a selfish ass at first. You guys are great!
