Ascent Trip Report

I spent Friday the 13th to rest and to stay dry from the scattered showers. I wasn't sure if I would be able to hike on the 14th. I decided to wait until the morning to see what it would do. I got up, and decided to give it a shot. I went up, climbed up a lot of stairs, dealt with ice, and reached the col. From there, went up some steep rock slabs and using the cable to assist my way up. Eventually reached the summit for my 46r and NE111 finish. Overcast. Surreal. A bunch of big white canvas bags. Probably from a helicopter drop. Great views from the summit. Got my pic taken from some people passing through. As I was heading back to Gardens, encountered a bunch of people heading up the trail.
