Ascent Trip Report

I was with a group of 11 Olympia Mountaineers led by Tom Eckhout. We started from the lower trailhead and took the winter route to the summit. The mountain was socked in with clouds for the climb up. We starting getting snow around the winter/summer junction. Crampons were not needed. Most of us wore microspikes. When descending, the clouds gradually cleared for some good views. The winter chute is melting fast but the snow was soft and mostly good for glissading. I saw one goat on Point A sub-summit
