Ascent Trip Report

Day climb from Bunny Flat. Great snow pack the whole way up. Snow started about half a mile from Bunny Flat, which was a balmy 65F when we started at midnight.

This was arguably the last "great" weekend on AG. By the following weekend of July 4, Misery Hill had largely melted out, and snow elsewhere was fading quickly.
