Climbed with my friend James B in one long day. Camped at TH on Sept 31 and started around 5:30 am next day. Summited at exactly 2:00. Intermittent dark clouds eddying through the peaks around us yielded small amounts of graupel. And was somewhat concerning during the middle of our climb. Precip waned quickly though and the sun came out for the summit with tremendous views!
Climbed Cowen via the normal route/South Face. What a fun scramble! The view from the top was amazing. Did the trip in 2 days. Great weather!!!
