 and how much more? I don't think I can reach the summit at the timing that I planned...
don't think I will make it in time for sunrise.
now I don't think I can make it to the peak at all

Every huts on each station will have their own stamps. the huts are above each other so each huts might have the height imprint on their stamp ....
