Ascent Trip Report

Quite a contrast to rain/sleet of yesterday. Last mile through 4" of snow/slush/water mix. Made side trip on Yellow Trail to Lookout Rock on way up. New summit building is out of character (built 2012) making top anti-climactic. However, it does provide good 360 degree views from balconies. 4hr20min RT (8:45-1:05)
