Ascent Trip Report

Started from Alum Cave trail head at 730am. Made it to Alum Cave within an hour and from that point ice and snow was more abundant and slowed us down quite a bit. Stopped by at the lodge and looked around for a few minutes before proceeding to the summit where we arrived by about 11am. Several inches of snow still at the top. We decided to head down since we had already taken more time than expected. Luckily the rising temps turned the ice a bit slushy and were able to get down much faster arriving back at the trail head around 1pm.
