Ascent Trip Report

A quick hike with a few friends; don't trust a 0% chance of rain in the NW when it rained the day before! Thankfully, we were prepared for some moisture and ended up nearly having the trail to ourselves. We encountered a pair who were descending near the summit, a lone hiker on top who was just leaving as we arrived, and a family (4) just setting out as we returned - that was all!
