What if you have to get up at two in the morning to climb a tall mountain?

First, there is nothing special about 2am so I usually just get up when I am ready. If I am really concerned about it (which doesn't happen anymore since I don't travel out of the continental US for climbing), I have a small travel clock with a really loud alarm that I throw in my pack.
