Ascent Trip ReportConditions were great, temps in the high 40's with 15-20 mph wind gusts up top. When I got down below treeline, around 11am, it started raining, and apparently dusted the summit with some snow.
7.65 Lb pack. Intended to take black cloud trail, slept at Black Cloud Trailhead, but headlamp was dying and no one else was around, so I opted to take the more popular trail.
