Ascent Trip ReportA great hike on an absolutely gorgeous day. I was a bit slagged from doing Jefferson from the trailhead the day before. However, I made good time getting to the top in under 2:30 including the time it took to fill out the permit. It was a weekend, so the trail was quite crowded. Only small patches of snow still existed with all but one being avoidable. Excellent scree and standing glissading on the way down. No need for an ice axe and trail runners are fine.
