What to Bring for the Climb:

Comfortable clothing will suffice for the first two days. However, many underestimate the frigid conditions of the mountain above 12,000 feet. Warm clothing is essential and should include a down-filled parka with hood, fleece shirts, warm pants, waterproof and windproof shell pants, thermal underwear, mittens, wool hat or Balaklava and scarf. Good walking shoes and socks are appropriate to about 15,000 feet but sturdy hiking boots with warm socks and sock liners are needed to reach the summit. At this altitude sun protection is necessary so bring dark glasses, suntan lotion and a hat with a brim to protect your face and neck and snow goggles. Also necessary are your water bottle, sleeping bag, trail mix, energy snacks and candy bars, flashlight camera with film and personal toiletries including toilet paper.
