A group of 12 went up via the Shira Plateau - Western Breach Route. The Arrow Glacier climb was the big day (going from 16,000' to 18,800'), and camping inside the crater was weird. After doing the summit on June 21, we descended 9000' that same day, then another 5000' the last day.
Pretty interesting. The altitude will kick your butt if you are not ready for it. I decided not to take the Diamox for altitude, since I did not need it. (Bob Gross)
