Ascent Trip Report

Warm - just a few degrees below zero and very foggy. No views at the summit. A lot of snow had melted - what was there was well packed down. Needed poles and microspikes. Nice group. Nice hike. Stayed warm - especially at the glassed in fire tower at the summit - perfect for a warm lunch with hot cocoa.
