Ascent Trip Report

Windy, no view. Tried to scramble over to Sam Adams on descent but clouds too thick to discern highest point. Stopped at Gray Knob Hut to grab lunch out of the wind. Raw, cold conditions. Left car at 8:30am and returned @ 5:30pm. No view other than on Dome Rock; good day to enjoy plant life and numerous waterfalls along route.
