Ascent Trip ReportNoel, Ava (dog) and I left Seattle around 5:15am. Started up the trail at 8:00am and made Peggy's pond at 10:00am, much lager than we thought it would be. There are trails all over the place here, chose wisely... As we headed up the SE ridge the fog and clouds rolled in and the wind picked up. Our clear/sunny forecast vanished, surely felt like winter! We followed cairns up the ridge and hit fresh snow around 6500. Ended up front pointing up black ice covered with a little snow below the saddle just to the South of the East peak, but came down rocks on our way back. Made the summit around 12:15, tagged it and headed down. Mostly a trail the whole way except for the talus and boulder bowls/sections. Back to the car just before 5pm. Didn't see anyone all day, coffee at Maggie's afterwards. Didn't bother looking for a register because the weather wasn't great...
