Comments
Comments: A crystal clear, blue sky day for this out and back with long 360 degree views at the top. The wind was surprisingly pretty stiff and cold along the road and in the trees in the morning. It did dissipate to almost nothing as I summited except for wind right at the peak and on the other side of the mountain. It was much more comfortable mid morning and I was able to spend significant me time on the peak enjoying the views with no other hikers in sight. The trail is in great shape with a hard packed trek. There are bony parts near the bottom and some icy spots but plenty of snow to step on so as to not wreck your micros. I bare booted until after the second bridge where I was met with ice on stone steps. Spikes from there until the end and probably warranted for the whole journey. I met six other hikers ascending and I was descending.
