Ascent Trip Report

A good overall winter hike. We started hiking in relatively warm weather (55 F), but by 12:00 the clouds rolled in and brought overcast weather. At 7000 ft we entered the cloud and from then on endured drizzle and cold temps to the summit. At the summit the clouds broke slightly and gave us good views of Lily rock and Idyllwild. Trip was well worth the weather.
