Our group slpit in half on the usual approach from Twin Lakes. Several of us who were ahead set up our tent near a small lake below the south face and while waiting for the others climbed up the easy ridge that points generally west.
Several hours later our group was all together and settled in camp. It was still mid afternoon so we all climbed to the summit by the same route.
After we returned to camp, one of our members, an Iranian, performed his usual ceremony by first sitting on the snow at the edge of the lake and after conditioning himself plunged in for a swim.
