Perfect summit shot!

Looks colder than a font del-del (countryside skating rinks in France) though, hope your excitement sustained you safely back down. Did you ascend via Bunny Flats and Heather Lake (SW side)?

Re: Perfect summit shot!

Bunny Flat and basecamp at Lake Helen. I had every layer on after I crested Misery Hill - the wind was brutal. By the time I made it back down to Lake Helen, a huge lenticular cloud had shrouded the summit. Very glad I made it down before that cloud moved in, as I'm sure it would have gotten even colder and created near white out conditions.

Glad you started early on summit day and beat the onset of tricky weather!
