Ascent Trip Report

I hit the Summit in just over 2 hours, no snow until the last half mile, just past the ponds. If you have a dog i'd advise you to take the snowy trail route, but if you're up for a scramble, all the snow can be avoided by taking the rock field to the tower.
Blue sky and sunshine everywhere east of Rattlesnake and Mt Si, and a beautiful cloud front down around 4000 feet from there to beyond view to the Sound.
