Though the fog obscured all the vistas and dropped the temps down to the low 40s-30sF, this was still a great climb. A storm on Saturday night dropped hail in the lower half, starting at mile 2, and snow in the upper levels, which may have scared people off, as there were only 12 people total on the trail. I was happy to break out my new micro spikes, which made the trek really adventurous and fun. Several of the hikers I came upon had decided to turn around at 5 miles up due to the snow, which made the trail a bit slick. But felt like stable as a big horned sheep. The trail is a bit rutted from rain runoff, and snow melt, so there’s a bit of hopping to do, but it’s fun and do-able. I recommend an early start, by 7am, to finish before sunset.
