Ascent Trip Report

I made my ascent via the Harrington Trail on the southwest side of the mountain. It was super-humid all day. I stopped to take in the two huge windmills on my way up (off to the right of the trail), crossed 5 wooden bridges, and spent ten minutes close to the summit scrambling up some near-vertical rock shelves. A great day despite all the perspiration.
