Ascent Trip Report

Got a late start. Cloudy and warm, but a few breaks in the clouds when we were on the summit.

Ascended on Arrow Slide - mix of open wet slabs and loose scree. Very steep near top. Took left spur and bushwacked through DENSE, THICK trees back to trail. Spent a long leisurely dinner on Hancock, then hit South Hancock and we descended in fading light. Last mile in darkness.
