First off, thanks to all of the awesome people here for all of the great information and support when I was preparing for this trip. We had a successful summit on Monday morning 6-25-2012. We did it in two days and it was an amazing experience. It was insanely windy at both Trail Camp and from Trail Crest to the summit but other then that there wasn't a cloud in the sky. None of my group of three had any problems with altitude or anything either as we stayed at horseshoe meadows, then the portal before starting. Here are my blogs I wrote on the trip(ya I am a little crazy at writing and photographing a lot)
This one is a hiking report with all of the times and information on our trip, it has a lot of photos and a 7 minute video as well
This one is a straight photographic guide of all of the main parts of the trail, over 70 photos
And this is my review of the Portal Store with their awesome hamburgers and pancakes.
Let me know what you guys think and thanks again for all of the support. I linked to this forum from both of my hiking posts as it was an insanely valuable resource for completing this hike.
