Ascent Trip Report

I started around 12:30 and reached the summit at around 2:30. We had a few brief episodes of very light rain and thunder on the way up. I made the mistake of going toward the north summit first, where I saw that the south summit was obviously higher. I tried traversing along the granite ridge toward the true summit, and that's when the character building began in earnest. There was a period of heavy rain, so I headed back down into the trees. The rain let up after a few minutes, and from there I climbed up to the true summit. By that point the sky had cleared up quite a bit, and views were great. I got back to the trailhead a little before 4:30.
