Left the Barrels at 2.30 am on the 27th of July 2010. Group of 9 plus guides. Encountered possibly 100+ people who were going to the top on that day. Weather conditions were perfect on the 27th with the 26th having been a disaster (storm on the summit). We summitted at 11.25am on the 27th of July. 8 of 9 made it. Saw 8-10 more people on the summit. Great climb. Getting down was definitely more difficult and some of us glissaded down after completing the traverse all the way down to below the rocks.
