Ascent Trip Report

Held on tight as Darrel pushed to the top in a racing fashion. Passed many tourists in jeans and street shoes. Had a short break at the Lake of the Clouds hut. Otherwise made the complete ascent in almost exactly 2 hours. Heavy fog all the way. No views nearly the entire day. Returned on the Jewell trail, which was significantly less steep.
