Ascent Trip Report

Was an overall nice hike. Only saw one other person on the trail after it split on the shared trail to Haystack/McKenzie. Towards the peak the trail got a bit icy, needed the crampons for traction. Was very pretty, quite an interesting way of fording the stream as the water was running high and fast. Trail was very wet overall, but was a really nice secluded climb.
