Ascent Trip Report

Shockingly, when we arrived at the Stanford Ave trailhead at 7:30 AM on a Thursday, all 43 parking spaces were already taken. We had to park on a side street. What a zoo!

I don't understand why Mission is so popular. Maybe it's the silly photo op. When we got up there, about a dozen people were milling about, waiting for their turn to be photographed. The famous pole or whatever was adorned with a Christmas tree, adding to the allure. Ignoring the throng, we kept going and had the actual high point to ourselves. No one else bothered to come up to the summit while we were there or go over to Allison.
