Ascent Trip Report

Drove to road late at night. Slept in vehicle. I do not think there was any sites. Woke at 4 am. It just rain but wanted to do this. Walked in dark until the trail reach the site of mountain. There were clouds but going in our direction. I over came the allergy problem. The trail is more visible after second saddle. Everyone made it to the summit today. Class 3 moves were good and dry. Easy to maneuver around. There is a long chute that is rough going up before the first major saddle. One side is crust like cement. This is where you want to be. Ice pix will help get up this. Great day for views. Everyone helped each other.
