Start time: 1:55am. Was pretty sure this would be the day I would die. Fortunately it wasn't.

Wonderful. Had to hike up the road to the trailhead since the parking lot was closed.

Looking back at one of the cruxes. I tied up a hand line but like last time found it safer not to use.

Not many entries since I was last here almost 5 years ago to the day with Darija. Damn. Sean and Chad aren't mortal.

Crux. I set up hand line just in case but didn't need it. I did however use the rope for a few rappels. Really didn't feel like taking any chances.

Bishop Pass. 10:32pm. Better than I expected. Another 2 hours to go. I was confident I would make it at this point.
