"Uh, we overslept."
Not what you want to hear when you're supposed to start hiking at 2:30am and have a huge day ahead of you. Thankfully, we hit the trail at 3:45am -- only a little late. We can recover that time, though.
Despite sleeping relatively close to the pass, it still took most of the morning to actually get to the pass; ugh. However, after a long time walking, we were finally hanging out in the Muir shelter at 6:33am!
