Ascent Trip Report

Debatable if we can consider this a true summit. Way too many people on summit block at once. Someone trundled a bunch of rocks and one hit me on the hand, helmet, and shoulder. Ended up slightly breaking a finger. Had to come down about 20 ft from the true summit due to the injury. Beautiful area. Approach was less painful than I anticipated. Don't recommend it on Memorial Day Weekend.
