Ascent Trip Report

what a fine mountain! jim, susan and i started out right around 7am from the columbine campground. the trail is mostly pretty obvious, with a few possibilities of going the wrong way. jim and susan's gps skills, plus my nosing around averted any wandering. no register on the summit, which was disappointing. jim bagged north arc dome on the way back, while susan and i continued down. we heard thunder and saw lightning, which accelerated our pace considerably. we got back to cars just before the rain started.
this is one i'd do again, and i don't say that about many of them!
