Ascent Trip Report

Nice day for a climb, despite smoke from forest fires coming from the west. On my previous two tries, I was once stopped by deep snow below the summit, and the next time cold and high winds made me back down from partway up the pinnacle. This time the trail up from the ridge was easy to follow. Only one other person on the mountain. The pinnacle was harder than I thought it would be, and there wasn't much to see from the top because the smoke.
