Ascent Trip Report

Great day on the way up with a forecast of possible thundershowers after 11 am. We hit the top right around then and could see rain to the south. After leaving the top around 11:30 we got blasted with hail for about 30 minutes, but it was never out of control. The trip was smooth overall with quite a few people hitting the top that day and a pleasant temperature the entire time. Trail was in perfect shape with no snow or difficulty.
