Ascent Trip Report

Took the Sunset Ridge Trail up. Although it was very nice weather out, we encountered more snow as we ascended. About 500ft from the summit there were some snow drifts up to my waist. Despite the slippery rocks from the melting snow, it was a fantastic day of hiking and beautiful views.
