Ascent Trip Report

For some reason, leader took us to the false summit about 0.4 mi SW. Only about 3 people in our group of 12 wanted to continue to the true summit, and it likely would have been more difficult from the false summit, anyway.

No snow at all except far in the distance. Warm temps, probably about 50°F. Brought mountaineering boots, crampons, raingear, umbrella, none of which was used (in fact I wished I had worn my Merrell Trail Gloves with holes in instead of my waterproof approach shoes); used ice axe for balance on final slope to summit but not necessary.
