Ascent Trip Report

The road to the trailhead was blocked by an avalanche I'd estimate about a quarter of a mile from the trailhead itself, so we had to walk a bit more. The day was beautiful - couldn't have asked for a better one. I had to take off a layer not long after summiting Grays. Not a lot of people around, and those we did see tended to take more technical routes, so we didn't have a lot of contact until we got to the peak.
