Comments
Comments: 63F at the bottom and high 40s to low 50s on the summit of L. Gusty wind out of NW was chilling, 20-30 mph (guess), but very good visibility. Maybe as good as it gets. The summit was buzzed by a glider that I was worried for a moment was going to crash into the summit cone. Could hear the wind over the wings, it was so close.

Falling Waters was extremely busy near the top like the Hillary Step in places. But it was OK for the rest of the way down. Great day.
