Another tough climb! Trail condition was great and it's easy to follow up until the scramble; at that point the main way I was able to figure out where to go was just seeing other people up ahead.

Under the treeline the bugs were a bit bad if I stopped moving, so if you want to stop for a snack be sure to have your bug spray. Once you get out of the treeline the sun is on you pretty much the whole time so have sun protection.
