Killz, that guy is nuts but props to him. I bet that beer tasted great. That sounds like on hell of a slog to get there. Our approach was half only half that.
We tried to get cute with weight and estimate exactly how much booze to bring. We guessed wrong and ran out on the last night. IMO Going green would be the better option, if that's your thing.
I don't know if it is allowed but someone brought a dog up there before us, The poor thing postholed through the skin track the whole way up.
