Ascent Trip Report

Starting at the visitor center parking lot, its a very short walk in the dark windy rain to the top. Many people were waiting right outside the shop but why would you not walk the less than quarter mile to the top? It was extremely cloudy and rainy so the sunrise wasnt as spectacular as Ive heard it can be, but none the less still amazing.
