Ascent Trip Report

I did this one as a trail run instead of a hike. There was still some snow near the top, so I couldn't go to the summit in running shoes and shorts, but made the false summit, which is only 30 feet lower, and 1/4 mile short. The 9 mile, 3000-foot vertical gain run took me just under 3 hours. Not very fast, but I'm not a professional trail runner. Pictures
