Ascent Trip ReportRainy morning. Snow on Homestretch and summit area, with no views from the summit. When I exited the Homestretch the summit boulder was not visible due to cloud/fog. I followed tracks to the boulder, confirmed I was there by the BM, and sat on top for just a minute or so before heading down. Coming down the Homestretch I actually slid on my butt over some of the rocks.
