Very cool! Climbing in a group of three? Curious how quick the time went, I'm heading to Whitney/Russell on the 28th and may end up climbing in a party of three because of mitigating circumstances...

That stove/peak photo is one of the best I've seen in long time. TFPU.

We went from iceberg lake to summit in 5 hours. Hike back to
Iceberg takes about two hours.

Climbing in a party of three doesn't have to slow you down much. We did it with one rope. Saved weight for sure, but everyone needs to be comfortable at the grade.
