Ascent Trip ReportThe cloud base was too low on the 28th. On the 29th, however, the weather cleared a bit. In other words there were only light rain, snow and wind with the occasional clear skies - all within an hour. I didn't need any heavy gear and a base layer, rain jacket, light shirt and soft shell did the job. I saw a few other climbers along the way and all seem to have started at Cronin's Yard.
