Ascent Trip Report

This was the second peak of the day.. this was great the alpine zone... it became extremely windy not just normal winds 50 MPH, the weather is always changing up there so prepare yourself. we were coming up from the glen boulder trail. this is quite a hike but well worth it.. the views are incredible.. unfortunately the clouds just shielded Washington summit but on a good day this would be by far the best view of that mountain up close. well worth the hike for the views alone not easy but id love to do it again.
