Ascent Trip Report

With Albee and Ed Horse ran from Sylvan lake to summit and back. 42:23 up and 36:22 down = 1:18:35. 1,200' of climb, some snow and a little mud and ice but nothing too bad. Ran in shorts and long-sleeve and was comfortable (except while spending about 25 minutes on top). Not much wind, great views.
