Ascent Trip Report

Great day for a hike. The Great Explorer and I had a nice breakfast at the Alpine Inn and set out from the trailhead past Winnisook Lake. Bugs were a menace, and we were moving slow due to the rocky trail that was fairly steep. After a mile and a half, The Great Explorer told me to go on without her. I dropped my pack and headed up to the summit. Decent views from before the summit and after (to the north). Not much on the top, except for a concrete pad for the old tower. Didn't see a benchmark or register. Ran down to hook back up with TGE and head out.
