Summited on 01/19/2012 with two other climbers and one guide - Vern Tejas. Route not very technical but conditions can be extremely cold and wind can be of serious concern. Summit day was cloudy and windy gusting up to 35knots. Temps on the summit ridge were really extreme. We tagged the top and got the hell out of there. Joe Kasputys was one of the climbers with me. He became the oldest person to summit Mt. Vinson at age 75. He was a physical freak.
