Ascent Trip ReportVery straightforward day on this mountain, which is otherwise (of course) renowned for its poor weather. About 60% of the trail still had snowy/icy sections in the trees and upper slopes. We enjoyed a very quiet day on this popular summit, only meeting a couple of the very friendly observatory volunteers on the top to chat with.
