Ascent Trip ReportWent hiking with the LSI crew for a day. Bad weather reports leading up to the day, and of course it got wicked nasty in the afternoon. Tried out the new boots and the new raincoat. Made it most of the way up in just low cloud cover with a slight drizzle. Then things got nasty on the way down. Full on downpour. Nevertheless, it was still a great day.
