Ascent Trip ReportHit this one after dark also, unfortunately. It was very cold, lightly raining, and in the thickest fog I have yet seen in my life. Impossible to locate anything less than 10 feet away from my face. Got increasingly soaked on the way up to get to a summit visitors center that was obviously closed. No sights to see as it was, again, after dark. This was just the worst. The least I have ever enjoyed a highpoint, by far. Wait until daylight and/or better weather and/or better season to do this one.
