Ascent Trip Report

WOOHOO! Backpacked in on the 28th. Stayed at Uphill Lean-To thna hiked up to Marcy in the morning. Not a bad hike at all, from there. Got to the four corners than got on a roll and did the last .9 miles to the summit in a half-hour. The clouds were low today so it was wet, cold and very windy on top. Limited views but for my first time, it was definitely more than worth it. Great hike!
