| Elevation:||5723 ft / 1744 m|
Ascent Trip ReportSnow from the bottom of the steep winter route chute(with the rapid melt this route is no longer safe) to the top with a few spots along the way where the trail was exposed under some trees. Most of the tracks seemed to follow the actual trail surprisingly well considering how seldom it was visible. The summit cornice has melted back 5-10 feet back from the edge of the steep north face.
The weather was a combination of heavy rain, thunder and lightning, and sunshine, all of them simultaneously at one point. The rest of the trip was dry and often sunny. Thunder could be heard and lightning seen far to the west in Everett. I saw 1 other solo hiker and a group of two, though there were many more cars in the lot wen I arrived.
