Early wake-up call

That was me that you guys gave the early wake-up call to. I heard you coming from a lot lower down, but got a surprising wake up when you arrived in camp. It was cold up there, wasn't it? I think you guys brought the wind with you, b/c it had been eerily still until right around when you guys got there, and then the wind picked up. Congrats on the summit, it was perfect weather the day before!

Sorry for waking you

Yea it was nice coming up, but it got windy and cold fast some time after we laid down. I had a 20 degree bag so I was fine; one guy in our group said it was his worst night ever. Man it was windy up on the summit and that whole day on the mountain.

spring or fall?

I saw you made this page in April ... I'm assuming that's when you climbed? is the spring a good time or the fall better? I know summer is too hot; and I'm wondering if winter is too snowy? (sounds weird asking about snow in texas...)

Re: spring or fall?

I would think most any non-summer month would be OK. They can get periodic snows up there throughout the winter. I was there in April only a bit of snow was left from a big March snow. I think the biggest winter issues would be ice and cold, strong winds.
