Ascent Trip Report

Arrived the trail head around 0821, which was fine but it was already crowded. Lots of tourists and, as I continued to discover along the route, too crowded for me. At least one of the tourists was smoking cigarettes regularly, which baffles me. And worse yet, xhd wasn't picking up the butts but instead discarding them. I got a few decent pictures at the summit, and did pick up some others' trash along the way.

The trail is pretty non-stressful, until the rock outcrops and chute. Then it gets more serious.
