Ascent Trip Report

Fantastic weather for a hike. There was still some snow on the switchbacks and on the final summit climb, but nothing too bad. We did it with trekking poles but without microspikes. We started at 3:40 and summitted at 11:40. Rested on top for 40 minutes and headed down. The trail was much prettier than I anticipated. Good hike.
