Did it from the valley, a long day, 11 hours from Plangeross and back, though lost about an hour when nearly at the summit when a thunderstorm approached, so we scuttled back down the south ridge to the little scree filled cirque where we waited for it to pass over. Then went back up to the summit which was superb. Good conditions, no need for any crampons or axes.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
