Comments
Comments: Winds were INSANE. Once above tree line, winds picked up, and increased intensity the higher up you got. Summit was not visible from false summit due to heavy clouds. Many that we passed going up had turned around, not reaching summit due to heavy winds. Winds were around 60MPH. Literally could have knocked you over if not low and careful. Gave up just above false summit.
