Wow! Sunrise in the boulder field was INCREDIBLE! We sat, ate breakfast, and sang
"Morning has broken...". We climbed by starlight till we reached the boulder field. It really makes
distance seem a lot shorter when you can't see how far you have to go. Layer up, go to bed the
afternoon before, get up around 1:30-2:00am and start then. AMAZING!!!
Also, try to summit between 10am-12pm. That way you can make it down to treeline before the
(almost) daily thunder and lightning show up!
