Ascent Trip Report

A pretty wild late-summer storm blew in as I was approaching the halfway point of this ascent. Horizontally falling snow incentivized me up the rest of the way. Came across a young couple near the summit, as they were turning back. They were very cold and poorly prepared for the conditions. I got over to Oxford and back before things got completely out of control. Easy trail, not excessively straining, but the weather made for an enjoyable and rewarding challenge.
