Ascent Trip Report

Rained non stop entire ascent and descent except for when it snowed at higher elevations. Ridiculous tangles of blow down across the trail turned hike into 7 hour epic in the rain. Took north trail around to NE bowl and ascended east ridge snowy slopes and traversed to summit. I'm sure this would have been a much nicer hike in July or August.
