|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|

Ascent Trip ReportSnow on the trail was significant at/beyond Mystery Camp. The sun and warm weather kept snow slushy so we didn't need snowshoes but used microspikes on the way down as snow hardened in the shade. Started at 11AM from Trailhead, party was two backpackers and three day-hikers, averaged about an hour of breaks on the way up, summited around 5pm, rested for a while and then backpackers made camp and day-hikers left and were back at the car at 8:00PM.
