COMMENTS: It's one thing to drive to the summit, it's another thing to Climb this peak, especially in Winter.

Keep in mind some of the Highest Winds on the Planet have been recorded on this mountain (231 mph, in April 1934)  by the Summit Weather Station and a significant number of people have died climbing this mountain.
