Ascent Trip Report

This climb is well documented in many reports. There is little need for me to elaborate. We left from the parking lot at Devils Lake Campground. 12.5 miles up and back. Left at 4:15am and were back at the parking lot at 11:45am. We spent 45 minutes on the summit alone!!! Many people were on the trail, just not up there yet and all the overnighters who had stayed up there had left priorto our arrival.
The trail is good for most of the climb.
Lost of smoke from the wildfires.
