Did this as an overnight with a couple of friends in 2014. Slept like a brick in the saddle even though it was windy as hell and our tent almost blew over, and then summited in the morning. My first peak over 10,000 ft! The scramble was really exciting, but not too difficult. There was still snowpack in late September. It was absolutely beautiful in the valleys, with flowing creeks and abundant wildlife.
