Ascent Trip Report

A really short detour off the main trail on the way back down from the true Zigzag Mountain Summit. The Rocky outcropping at the top is kind of fun to 'scramble' (not much of one) up.

A great view of Mt. Hood, with Adams fully visible as well as the top of Ranier and the base of St. Helens. The mass of clouds hanging over the valley tot he west was kind of interesting too.
