Ascent Trip Report

Nice day - better than expected. Had some nice views on the way up. Washington was in and out of the clouds - looked close enough to touch! Lost the Ammo trail on the way up, but Andrew bushwacked to find it. Stopped at the hut to eat and gear up for summit. VERY WINDY - too windy for the ridge walk to the rest of the southern presidentials, so monroe was it. Short and steep - but beautiful.
