Ascent Trip Report

Wow! So many spring wildflowers in bloom. Saw several varieties all along the sides of the lower trails. Just beautiful. Trail was very dry most of the way. A few minor muddy spots. Still a long spine of thick icy snow near the summit. I used microspikes. Some sections were iffy. One wrong step and you caved in. Gorgeous views of the high peaks from the summit and tower. Bugs (including black flies)) were minimal (started 9 am, finished about 12:30 pm).
