Ascent Trip Report

Very wet day in the PNW. Stopped to view waterfalls on way up. Much mud and water on trail. Became stormier as we approached cliffs. Clouds blowing enough to catch glimpses of valley and rock faces. Second half of ascent was mostly in a trail bed of 2-4 inches of water. Got to summit and only stuck around for a second. Was contemplating doing loop back through creek valley but wasn't in the mood. Explored rock crag lower down despite weather.
