Go up to Muir camp on a friday afternoon and get in early evening, stay in the shelter hopefully. Ascend via the Gibraltar ledges. Get up at 2am Saturday, be through the exit chute by sunrise, to the crater rim by 10-11, with an absolute turn around time of 12. Awesome ski descent via the Edmonds route, or if conditions are extremely prefect, via the Furher Fingers. Time is super flexible since we would need great weather, but I would like to do the climb before March.
