Ascent Trip ReportCold start (40s) warmed into the 70s and than a breezy/chilly 50s near the summit. I had stashed my jacket within the first half of the trail and wished I hadn't when I sat to rest and eat lunch at the summit.
Surprisingly there were several small random patches of melting snow/ice (!?) the last mile or two approaching the summit and enough running water along the way that I wouldn't have had to carry my own.
I could see several reservoirs from the summit that had been filled to the brim, this being an El Niño year.
