Departed the barrels at 2.30am on the 27th for a crack at the summit. once acclimatized, I recommend taking the snow cat up to the rocks as this helps preserve your energy and increases chances of summiting. The weather was great on the 27th and though cold and slightly windy, the sun was out and we had a great climb up to the summit. I summitted at 11.25am on the 27th and used Mountain Madness for this trip. 8 of the 9 members on my team made it to the top!
