Ascent Trip ReportParked outside Camp Walt Whitman gate. Was rainy and misty when I started with low clouds, by the time I reached the summit, it was perfect and clear. Trail was wet, but not soaked as I had previously read could be the case. Very leaf covered which caused me to take it very slow, but no issues. A couple of smaller blowdowns, easy to step over. Considering I found very few recent trip reports, I was surprised to pass 2 families heading up on my descent. Aside from the reasonably steep 0.4 or so to the summit, the rest is moderate with huge bang for your buck.
