My brother and I got really lucky with the new process. We had both scheduled vacation for Aug. 19-23 and wanted to do a multi-day summit attempt during that window. In July, we watched for permits intermittently on Recreation.gov and saw some pop up here and there. A couple of weeks ago I started watching the site almost obsessively. I started seeing quite a few permits come and go. A lot of the permits were for the following day, but occasionally I'd see one come out a day or two, or even a week in advance. On Wednesday morning, 8/14, 2 overnights became available for 8/19 and I instantly snagged them. We summitted this past Wednesday, 8/21, after spending 2 nights at Outpost Camp. It was my fifth summit and my brother's first. He did great!
