Ascent Trip Report

First time up to Muir. Unexpected to find so much activity that high up. Looked like some good rock scrambling around the camp itself as well.

Took regular rest breaks & the party was recovering from a knee injury, so going up was super slow.

Hot, muggy weather. Limited views due to haze. Clouds rolled in but only minor precip.

Consistent snow around 7000'. Snow was mushy the entire way.
