Ascent Trip ReportIt is June and I am hiking a freaking error range P1000 with a road to the top. This year sucks hairy donkey testicles. Oh and 30% chance of rain. Somebody needs to waterboard Al Roker.
Go to Ellensburg and then go up the road from the South. The one that goes to the summit. Drive it to the top. Unless you are me and walk roads covered with snow. In a week you'll be able to make it another mile but it may be several weeks before the very top melts out given this sucktastic weather. Generally consolidated with occasional postholing. Lameness personified.
