|Lost and Found:
||My friend lost a glove on the summit when the wind took he. He climbed down below the rocky knob, and was able to retrieve his liner along with several other frozen gloves! ||
||Straightforward hike today. Leaves were generally dry as was much of the rock. The only tricky part was the upper couple of hundred feet, or the "last push," as this section had flows of thick, black ice. As is generally the case, it was easier climbing up rock hopping, and trickier coming down those couple of hundred feet.|
All in all, a nice day, and with the cold and summit frost and ice, a reminder that winter is coming.
