Started at 6 am, not sure why I was thinking this one would take so long. It doesn't. I summited at 8:15 am. Easy approach, fun hike up the summit pinnacle. Sullivan is right in his book, there are at least 36 switchbacks, some only a few steps in distance, but they are all there. Got a call from my brother wishing me happy birthday on the summit. No idea how there is cell reception at the top! Back at the trailhead by 10:30 even with a half hour break at the summit. Fun, always wanted to tag this one.
I have done this peak twice, once in 2007, with my friend Mike and then again in 2008 with a large group of friends and family. The second trip was fun because my girlfriend Brook, really started to see why I enjoyed climbing so much and she literally flew up the mountain.
