Ascent Trip Report

Blustery cool day for July. Left Greeley Pond trailhead at 8:45 with 5 cars in the lot ahead of us, temp was 57 and clouds were present, but starting to clear. Level gentle uphill first 1.5 miles, then a very steady steep section for most of the rest of way. Passed a couple folks clearly laboring. Top was very windy and Kerry nearly passed the cairn without realizing we were at the top. Got some nice pics of the Tripyramids and Passaconway ( I think). Headed on to Osceola at about 11:00 AM. Very windy at the top, probably 40 or 50 mph, sustained.
