Ascent Trip Report

I started around 7AM, reached the summit around 9AM. Clear skies, but windy above treeline, and very windy and cold at the summit. The zipper broke on my jacket, but I had another one. I had planned on heading over to Nystrom, reconsidered due to the wind, but then decided to go for Nystrom when the wind died down.
