I just got around to creating my first trip report. Please, be gentle. :oops:

Awesome... No one will beat you up too bad. Just one note... be sure to make sure you don't mean "right" when you put "left" in your trip report. I laughed because I do the same thing EVERY time. I always have to go back and edit mine after the fact. (specifically, I'm looking the the captions under the 3rd and 4th pictures where it tells you to go "left" but the pictures indicate a right turn. :-)

It doesn't look as if crampons are needed - correct?


Nah, not at all.

It wasn't that bad, really. I was able to turn off my headlamp after about 45 minutes. I started out at 4:37 and summited around 9:24, if that gives you any indication, but I'm a slow hiker.
