Ascent Trip ReportFollowed the loop on Keith Winston's track. Very hot day but saved by killer winds. Had lunch at picnic table in shade at campground before hitting the summit. Benchmark very visible as well as amazing views of coastline and all the islands. Strong winds were sending sand into our mouths and nostrils on the way up, but made the heat a bit more tolerable. Lots pf different kinds and colors of flowers starring to bloom. Very beautiful day on spite of heat.
