My 3rd summit of St. Helens was an early morning push which got us on the summit and back down before the hot sun could fry our hides.
Joined by my close friend, Ed Thompson, we left the car at 5:30am and made the summit 4 hours later.
It was Ed's first attempt and he finished in style. To see the big smile on his face as he made the summit made the day for me, and very proud of him too.
It was a long slog down but we made it in one piece and treated ourselfs to a BBQ steak dinner that finished the day for us in a grand way.
