Ascent Trip Report

Started as a fairly pleasant but overcast day. On the way up, we were hit by a couple of brief showers. About the time we got to Windy Gap, thunder rolled in the distance, but it quickly moved closer as we started up the ridge so we turned around. Within a few minutes, the lightning was directly overhead.

Hwy 2 was closed at Islip Saddle for unknown reasons.
