Climbed with Tim (musicman82) yesterday. We brought overnight gear so that we would have shots at the summit Monday and Tueday. We bushwacked/climbed a spur to the top of the ridge, dropped our overnight gear and continued to the summit. The weather held and we made it at 2:40 PM. Incredible views from the top. Gorgeous mountains in every direction!
Tim and I got snowed off about a mile from the summit in 2010. We went back in 2011. Tim, injured from the day before, turned back less than halfway there, and storm clouds were all around. I considered not going on alone but realized I would not want to come back for a third try. Despite some brief showers, the weather mostly cooperated, including a thunderstorm one drainage away staying away.
