HJ, that's actually almost where I flashed home from when I went. I was at the stone bench with the amazing views. Funny story - our neighbors called my wife and told her they thought someone was in trouble on the peak because they kept flashing. She told them it was just me. They had a fun time of it as well.

Florian, I'll try and give you a call if I make it to the peak and conditions are favorable. (If the snow blocks my path or there's a crazy wind I'll just do it some other time). I only get reception about half the time, so it may be a bust, but if you're within view of San G on Saturday we may pull it off. You going to be around this weekend? If so I'll bring a mirror.

And along with everything else, there's a decent demo on the YouTube.
