Ascent Trip Report

Slept over in the field house the night before, and then headed up Glastenbury the next morning after being brought to the trailhead by van. Ran into some heavy rain just below the shelter, and it drizzled on and off through the night, with heavy wind rippling the tarp that was our shelter. Pretty cool view from the fire tower on top, but it was being rocked hard by the intense winds.
